    not a proper analogy In a private system, I pay my share based on risks as do others

    In a single payer many people don't contribute their share

    My point is that there would be no market for private carriers....especially in light of the current HCR Bill..it is designed to squeeze them out.

    Ideal solution offered in this editorial and one embraced by the majority of health care providers and embraced by business ... except of course the for profit payors.

    Those damn poor people again, hey Turtle.

    Would you support a single payer system if it was paid for by a flat tax?

    no because the federal government doesn't have the proper constitutional power to do such a thing

    It does work, just not the way the American government is doing it.

    Re: Are You in Favor of a Single Payer Health Care System?

    Health care cost per capita is over $6,000 in the US, far higher than any other nation, and that figure is from 2007. It is certain to be a lot higher now.

    The bottom line is that the US can no longer afford the health care system it now has. It is bankrupting not only business, which pays for employee coverage, but the government as well. It is a negative force in the creation of jobs, and a big part of the current deficit.

    Not only do we have the most expensive health care system on Earth, but we don't get what we pay for. People here are no healthier than they are in other modern nations, and may be less so.

    There is no question about it: We need to have a real national health care system and soon.

    Exactly. that was my op ... non profit single payor with no private payors except for people that wanted elective etc. private health care providers. We can not afford to support they with our billions any longer ... billions that do not improve healthcare ... just administrative fat.
