    As the saying goes, only time will tell.

    Of course, it could be that BOTH methods work...

    And which one to use is a matter of political decisions...
    Depends what your aim is. If it's to provide the best medical treatment on the planet, Free market is the way to go.

    However, If you want to provide the best medical care in the world, UHC is the only option.

    How about: We are right and if you think the rest of the world is better, leave?

    I am still optimistic, that with some work, America's greatness can be restored.

    Furthermore, all politicians who voted for increasing funding to the Evil that is VA should be booted from office. Which includes Republican House Minority Leader John Boehner and Senate Minority leader Mitch McConnell, both of which, amusingly have stated opposition to Obama's plan partly due to its "socialism."

    What does that even mean? UHC doesn't innovate, it can't hold a candle to a free market health care system.
