The Progressives have been trying to get Government run healthcare for a hundred years plus. Now that they have it, nothing short of Armageddon will deter them. No amount of hard luck stories, or death and destruction will change there mind. Essentially they shut the government down to prove it. So we're stuck with it and all the wonderful side effects. Best thing you can do is work hard at being healthy, because going to the DMV when your life is on the line ain't going to be fun.
