First of all, we are not a democracy, we are a republic - learn the difference. Secondly I have many friends in Canada and England who would come to the US for "serious" medical conditions if they could, and some have. Socialist medicine is mediocre at best and very expensive since the government runs it. The problem is not the doctors and the hospitals who do a fabulous job, it is our litigious society, the insurance industry and big-pharma, the AMA, the AARP and others who are constantly lobbying DC and finding willing participants in the financial rape of all of us in our corrupt Congress. That is the REAL issue.
This horrible bit of legislation will never work. It was not designed to work. It was designed to CONTROL a huge % of the GDP and "we the people". Its problem is that it is so bad it can't even get off the ground. It was supposed to fail 3 to 4 years down the road when the government could heroically ride in and "save" us with a single payer system. If you want proof of that, I will aim you at You Tube where you can find Obama saying specifically that to his union buddies and Reid saying the same thing just last week. I have a hard time believing how stupid you liberals are - but then you go and prove it over and over again.
