    That's a possibility, who runs all of the air traffic control in the USA?

    There's no precedence for large scale nationalization such as what you're suggesting.

    Other more civilized nations in the world that did UHC, did so because they had no real system to start with, neither did America mind you but it's too late to suddenly switch now that you've gone down this very dark path.

    No, it isn't too late and I predict that the USA will have universal health care eventually. Wait and see.

    1....government is not here to take care of people, its here to secure rights of people.

    if government has the power to take care of you...IT has the power of control over you.



    2...to institute a national system would require new revenue....government is already spending money it does not have..... creating deficits.

    where will the revenue come from?...continuing to tax the people to pay for more and more government will only cause the economy to fail.

    government is a creator of debt, it is not a creator of wealth.

    I agree, I don't see how any reasonable person could see having a nation full of strong, healthy people as something that would lead to a nations downfall.

    You don't know me.

    Besides, this summer I'll be getting a part time job.

    And you know what?

    When I go into the work force full time my opinion is going to stay exactly the same. If you need health care, pay for it yourself instead of taking from others. That is because I don't believe in leeching like you do.
    I see you completely ignored when I pointed out, with sources, that everything you are saying is wrong.

    So just so I understand you:

    - I advocate a system that is CHEAPER and provides coverage to EVERYONE. I work and pay taxes and have health insurance. Yet according to you I am a leech.
    - You get health insurance from mommy and daddy, you don't pay taxes, and you advocate a system that is MORE EXPENSIVE and has MILLIONS OF AMERICANS UNINSURED, and you are not a leech.

    Well, when you ignore facts and economics at least you've got your barbaric beliefs covered. I'm sorry that you coming up with insults got in the way of you actually making a rebuttal. I just think it's insanely cold and hypocritical that you think kids whose parents can't afford health insurance like yours should just die. You must be so proud of who you were born to.

    It would require LESS revenue, as is the case in every first world nation with national healthcare, all of which pay dramatically less than we do.

    It blows my mind that so called fiscal conservatives would advocate for a system that costs MORE.
