    Can't the pundits learn a bit of technical information before they spout off?  

    Single payer means NO insurance company.  The government functions in effect as the insurer.

    Socialized medicine means that government functions as the insurer and medical professional are salaried employees of the government.

    Multi payer means that there are multiple private insurers.  In a functional multi-payer system, the government strictly regulates their fees and does not allow them to deny care.  They may subsidize the insurance as well.

    What ddoes America have? Mayhem! Corruption! Bad results!
