I have a question to raise though.
I'm starting to agree with conservatives on one note, and thats the more I study American politics and the governmental system and structure, it appears that the Federal Government could really mess up a Government run system in America. It seems your system is just not set up for it. You're country is just too big, too much corruption in certain areas and the needs cannot really be addressed properly state to state.
But even for you Navy Pride. Do you think that the IDEA of everyone having Health Care is such a bad thing? If it worked?
Here in Canada the Health Care system isn't perfect... granted. But it allows everyone to have a level of care that I believe satisfies a persons basic human right to life and good health. If you're sick you can go see the doctor, free of charge. If you need life saving surgery you will get it.
Does that all seem so bad... once again if it worked?
