The last folks you want looking after your health care is the Govt . . . look at the great job they are doing on the Budget, Crime, Foreign Affairs and of course protecting Diplomats.
In most European countries a large percentage of the healthcare is delivered by the Private Sector . . . yes they may have "Single Payer" . . . but the Patient chooses the doctor, hospital and convenient time.
Unlike Britain and Canada . . . where "Hurry up and Wait" is the mantra ! ! !
"Death Panels" . . . what do you think will happen when over 30 Million souls are added to the Medicare Rolls with LESS MONEY ? ? ? Any mental midgit should be able to figure that one out . . . Sarah was RIGHT ! ! !
