    regarding Single Payer. We are told that it would be so much better and that the RW is paranoid that government would EVER ration care but then you see things like this, yet people still call the republicans crazy and that there are no 'death panels'...so who is right? Are we going to have to beg for health care more under Single Payer because we 'can't grow the deficit'? At least right now I am treated without being able to pay instead of not being treated at all!

    •  methinks you do not understand "single payer" (0+ / 0-)

      You dislike what you think is single payer.  There is a big difference.  In those countries (i.e. every other major industrialized country in the world) 97% to 100% of residents get health care.  Our country is nowhere even close to that level, even including emergency room stabilization (not full treatment, just bare life saving).
