Why would anyone want to settle for socialized health care that would have government restrictions? Let's fix the things that are wrong with our present system. There are many ways to save money without changing the whole system. I know that having a hospital bill made so people can understand and check it, would save a few billion. Making it so BC&BS get the same rates for services as do Liberty Mutual and other ins co. Have states hire more people to police doctors that are padding bills and cheating ins co. Check ins co. to make sure they are paying out what they should be paying. Blah, blah.
