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

    Recently, Rep. Conyers admitted that Obamacare was a platform to a single payer system (despite claims to the contrary during the debate).

    “Had that bill (Obamacare) failed, with all of its flaws, it would have taken another decade or longer to get single payer up and going. We view the health care reform bill as a platform on which we are now able to move forward.”
    http://www.singlepayeraction.org/blog/?p=2758

    In a search on the net, there are definitely people who advocate and support it in the US.

    Would you like to see single payer health care in the US?

    You'd be replacing a lightly competitive middle man insurance market with a monopoly middle man.

    Couldn't think of anything worse than our government, who can't even balance it's own budget, managing my medical care.

    Holy ****, did you not understand what he said, or are you intentionally being misleading. Conyers and Kucinich discussed opposing the bill to fight for single payer, which they(and the website you link to) support, but decided to support the bill, largely for getting rid of pre-existing conditions as a reason to deny coverage.

    They(meaning Conyers and Kucinich) will attempt to use the bill as a platform to work towards single payer, but that is not what the bill was designed as. It is also not a direct step towards single payer, and in fact, as he comments, grows the private insurance industry(the opposite of single payer). He is plotting the strategy for his goal moving forward, not saying that the bill was planned as a stepping stone.

    Not entirely a fair comment. The government also runs the most advanced, effective military in the world. The government has also led us to being the worlds foremost power militarily, politically and socially and continues to keep us there. Cynicism is easy, but it's as inaccurate as unbridled optimism.

    Yea but come on, the amount of wasteful spending in the military alone is just the icing on the cake of stupidity involved with these people.

    Jet's and bases the DOD doesn't want but has to take because of the nut jobs in congress, it can only be worse with UHC.

    Are you saying large corporations are waste free? Any large undertaking has waste, fraud and abuse. Pointing to that as a reason we cannot do it us patently false. I am willing to bet that most to all insurance companies have an equivalent percentage of waste.

    To me the real question is not can we do it. I think given the desire, we can do most anything successfully, which is why we are the greatest country on earth currently. I never think betting against the US is a good bet. The question to my mind is should we go to single payer, and that is a much tougher question, and I think Obama got it exactly right when he said that in the absence of another system, single payer would be the way to go, but since that is not the case, and we do have a system in place for health care, we should just work to improve that system, not replace it.

    No, of course not. Mayor Snorkum is an American. He pays his own way for himself and owes nothing to others, who should also be paying their own way.

    There are also people who support man-boy "love", but that's just as wrong.

    So you don't drive on public roads, expect police and fire support, and so on?

    There are also people who make irrelevant comparisons and appeals to emotion, but that's even more wrong.
