    Actually, re-reading the list, I would choose government health care with a private option. Probably the choice that most fits the plan that I have developed. Same regulations for both the government and private organizations.

    Re: Would you switch health care system?

    I dont want govt run insurance I believe the health care greatly diminishs in quality with the govt running it.
    Forty years ago most every full time job provided health insurance for their employees but like everything else today employers whine they cant afford anything all the while giving multimillion dollar paydays to CEOs whether they fail or not. One of the biggest reasons I dont want govt health care, call me callous but I dont believe an illegal immigrant breaking our laws and invading our country should get the same quality of AMERICAN health care as my kids and grandkids.

    See, I think government health care should be an option for everyone, though not dictated towards anyone. And I agree with you; illegal immigrants should NEVER be allowed government health care under any circumstances.

    A couple of ways. Firstly, from funds from folks dropping their private insurance. This would be in the form of an "opt out" taxation. Secondly, funds from Medicare/Medicaid which, in my plan, would be replaced by the overall government plan. Thirdly, since a bit of cost comes from government assistance for those who do not have insurance and need some sort of treatment (something that would no longer be allowed), this money could then be added to the overall health care fund.

    Re: Would you switch health care system?

    I sort of support government health care with a private option. I believe everyone should get catastrophic coverage from the government, and if you want better coverage in addition to that, you get it from a private source.

    If you set a man on fire, he'll be warm for the rest of his life.

    Yeah... I can see that, but, I believe that the plan that I have would replace Medicare, adequately.

    To be honest captain I have strong feelings about people without health care...I feel for them, any human being who has excellent coverage knows how good it is to be able to go to a dr whenever you dont feel good OR more importantly bring your kids when they are sick. Anyone that runs around saying everyone should pay for their own healthcare is a callous unrealistic individual in my opinion...you cannot pay for your own health insurance on small business pay or walmart or kmart pay either.
    The health care issue is so convoluted and divided ideologically I doubt there will be any resolution in the rest of the time I have here on earth. Clearly something has to be done.
