England went down this trail after WW II on health care and other social engineering by the central government. It did not work and they eventually elected Maggie Thatcher to clean up the mess. But, they were too far gone to return to their former position in the world. It took over 30 years for England to come to its senses. But by then it was too late and they still have a crappy health care system that has some of the worst mortality rates for cancer, especially breast cancer as one example. Obama, and the Dems, are putting us on the same trail, and bankruptcy besides. Oh, the happy days of whether there was a stain on a blue dress or not.

I think you should concentrate on the problems of your own countries mess ,America's infant mortality and maternal mortality is nothing to be proud of,as well as life expectancy and bankruptcy due to the U.S model.

statistics and sources, please. I know women in the "birthing" fields, and our rates are far better than average. Unless you count things like botched abortions left untreated too long, or the very poor or ignorant who do not consume sensible diets. As to life expectancy, we are not at the top, but very near it, in this category. And our average span continues to increase.

With statistics you can't choose what to include ,other countries have people who are very poor ignorant and don't consume a sensible diet..
However these are called human beings and your comment is beyond belief but somes up U.S attitude to healthcare
Now that Obama has been re-elected and Democrats still control the Senate, Republicans no longer have the chance to repeal Obamacare.

But all is not lost. There's still an opportunity for America to stop this disaster by choking the life out of the federal monstrosity. Obama's signature legislative achievement is likely headed back to the Supreme Court.

Just last week, the high court ordered a lower federal court to take up a lawsuit by the patriots at Liberty University, who claim Congress violated the college's religious freedoms by forcing it to provide federally mandated insurance and requiring payment for abortion-related services....
