SCOTUS will uphold the Individual Mandate
SCOTUS will strike down the Individual Mandate
I honestly believe it is too close to call, literally 50/50 either way

And there is also a difference between the rich, poor, and uninsured. A lot of well off people can suddenly find themselves without insurance for any reason... a lot of business owners I know, don't have insurance... a lot of independent business consultants don't get insurance either. Having a good job and no insurance, also excludes these people from the benefits of public funded hospitals. It's based on income after all.
We live in a country where going to doctor is a decision about our health, it's a financial decision... and we are less healthier as a result.
And personally, as somebody who lived in Europe, the waiting list wasn't long to go to the doctor when I needed one. Nor is it long according to my Canadian friends for them. The waiting list in America can be ridiculously long in it's own right, especially if you are a new patient. Going to the ER or to Urgent Care is faster in America than trying to see a doctor regularly.
Excluding some people from healthcare and health insurance plans isn't a good solution to the argument of waiting in line to see a doctor. There are many other places to start by addressing the long wait lines, such as the percentage of doctors to people. Germany has one of the highest percentages of doctors to every person that I am aware of.
America has serious health care issues that need to be addressed and fixed. America doesn't have to follow any other countries model, but America does need to get it together.
In my state, there are huge taxes private hospitals have to pay... Private hospitals have their own baggage to deal with, such as massive bad debts, uninsured abusing the services, and refusing to treat people based on their insurance and financial status. That's a lot of red tape the private sector has designed for itself to wade and cut through before giving the patient any care or trying to save their life.
I don't know how you simply reach the conclusion that private hospitals provide the best and most efficient care. If you are an excellent RN at a private hospital, then you should still be an excellent RN at a public hospital.
look at all the reports of the marches of the citizens in other industrialized nations complaining that they have comprehensive single payer health care
probably because they receive that health care at a cost not more than 50% of what it is per capita in the USA
I am not sure what you're really trying to say...
