Should the US move onto a universal healthcare system?

"The principle that adequate health care should be provided for all, regardless of ability to pay, must be the foundation of any arrangements for financing the Health Service."

- Margaret Thatcher

    Well Kumbaya! Efficacy, Efficiency and Equity. Medical quality, price and fairness. You can have any two but you can never have three. The UK National Health System has a cancer survival rate which is about 66% of that in the US. Are you willing to have a national sales tax so that poor people will contribute their fair share? Are you willing to deny care to old people because they no longer contribute to society? Are you willing to end costly procedures which only benefit a small minority of people? Are you willing to lower the standards of education for doctors? And etc.

    Yes. It's silly to expect employers, who aren't in the healthcare business, to be in the healthcare business.

    “The problem with socialism is that you eventually run out of other people's money.”

    Guess who said that? Margaret Thatcher.

    You get what you vote for. If Democrats take over you will truely be sorry.

    only if you are willing to have your income tax withholding doubled. and if you say yes to that, I have to ask if you work. People who don't work, imho, shouldn't be allowed to vote at all

    Yes. It would save the consumers a lot of money

    but the sick-care industry and big pharmy don't want to lose billion dollar profits.

    There is nothing in the Constitution saying I should have to pay for your healthcare.

    Except that most electorates are then too ignorant to recognise that implicit in that statement is the need to fund it ,and thereby set the limits on what that funding will provide.

    For example , in the UK ,the electorate are only willing to pay for a Mini ,but then expect a Rolls Royce.
