    Will you simply answer a question? How do you propose to transition from an employer based insurance system? Who will pay what, and how much? I want some details...

    Do you always put such blind faith in things of this importance?

    1. No one it had to be, only that currently it is.

    2. We spend more than UHC systems.

    Good evening, AP.

    Since Utopia, as we imagine it, probably doesn't exist, I'm fairly certain that the way to pay for it probably doesn't exist either. Sure hasn't stopped some from trying to convince us, though...on both counts! Are some really that gullible in believing it's possible?....I guess so, because it beats facing reality

    Transition?

    First, we can compare system. We pay most. We give access to less.

    Do you need links for that?

    Sure, details need to be worked out, but revisit the public option and work the move that way seems reasonable to me. But there might vibe better ways. I'm open.

    Good evening pg. It would be nice to get a rational answer to a simple question once in awhile...

    IOW, you can't or won't answer the question. I told you no one had. Good night...

    I'm not sure I understand your question. Do you not know how a single payer system works? Or are you speakingif the move from one to another. If the move, I've answered that.

    As for dollars, can't give you exact dollars, but those systems pay much less than we do. I can show difference in what nations spend on healthcare if that is what you want.
