    I understand the pain of kidney stones, but in the grand scheme of things they're less threatening than, say, a brain tumor.

    I think you're overestimating the availability or affordability of treatment for the uninsured.  If care is as readily available as you say...how would a more socialized system cause any impact on timeliness or availability? If the new system wouldn't actually result in more people being treated, then why would there be a need for rationing?
