I can't. This is important.

Thats also not taking into consideration that the president and other top democrates objective is to eventually go with a single payer plan. Several of them including the president have said that was the goal and the stepping stone to get there was a national health care option.
I recall that the Pres. Obama spoke of an "ideal world" in health care. To my knowledge he has never alleged that a public option would lead to single payer. I don't see why it would but it certainly would provide the competition that is sorely lacking in the industry.

I would like to go back to the idea that charity can pay for what morally all people support, which is help for someone who needs life saving medical care.
I was just wondering if there was any sort of information... for either view, that charity would be able to provide for all of the healthcare costs for life threatening illnesses. I have not been able to find the answer to a question like that, but I was wondering if anyone else had any answers.
But remember, even if healthcare isn't a right as a human being, people are more then willing to give it away for free in the form of higher taxes.
