    Ok tell me the more productive ways we could pursue greater Healthcare coverage. I want some answer, not some lip service like I always get from the Right.Can you do that Dr.Chuckles?
    Well, I prefer the japanese model, where the state manages the payment system, and services are still managed and delivered via the private sphere, but any single payer system would have likely been more ideal. Hell, even the public option, that was used as little more than a bargaining chip by the Obama administration, would have dealt with many of the issues with delivering a captive market to the insurance industry.

    PS you seem to think in cliche's. My political lean is meant to give a general idea of my politics, not define me

    I couldn't agree more but the pro-business elements of Congress wouldn't hardly allow discussion of that topic and would have never passed it. I like the Japanese system, too (mostly), with a little public provider thrown in for geographies that private services tend to avoid.

    He spent too much time on Obamacare, and even now is starting to walk it back and put it off.
