yup! that's why I like being able to choose how much I pay and to who I pay it! Once the government becomes your insurance company, you will have no wherer to go. I still remember the days when I had no insurance other than catastropic medical and I just went to my doctor, he treated me, and I paid him $45. My daughter, working full time, no insurance, had to resort to going to an ER after being turned down by urgent care as she had no insurance. Wouldn't it be more sensible for everyone if we just carried major medical and paid to see our doc for an ear ache?

Paul Krugman assured us back in 2009 that, “In Britain, the government itself runs the hospitals and employs the doctors. We’ve all heard scare stories about how that works in practice; these stories are false.”

If that’s the case, then the British press is filled with liars who deliberately make up horror stories about their nation’s healthcare system, as you can see here, here,
