No. Let's try something really novel. Instead of cranking down the road to the horrible patient-killing UK model, which is what you suggest, how about we get the government totally out of the health care market ? Let insurers and Doctors take care of healthcare. Let them compete with each other, across state lines, across products, and actually act like they are part of a Capitalist system.
Once this model proves itself, we could move on to education, agriculture, manufacturing, energy production, and other stuff that would work much better with the government out of their bedrooms.
