    of Govt is that they refuse to accept even the math of Govt spending. When Govt spends, those dollars don't disappear, they are received as income by the private sector. Cash registers don't discriminate between Govt dollars and private bank dollars.

    Single payer would be absolutely great for business. Companies would be free of having to deal with the labyrinth that is the insurance industry, unpredictable and rapidly increasing rates.

    Single Payer pros:
    Easily affordable by the issuer of the Dollar, Congress
    Cover every single American
    Increased health metrics, life expectancy, worker productivity, global competitiveness, real incomes and thus consumer spending
    Decreases personal bankruptcies

    Cons:
    Fewer profits for insurance, pharmaceutical, and medical device manufacturers
    Acceptance of the fact that collectivism and Govt action is necessary to increase our shared standards of living.

    Its examples like this that make me believe that Con politicians (which represent to a large degree their constituencies) really are just immoral, evil people.
