    I heard one suggestion to lower the age for Medicare every few years and include children, increasing the age every few years. Thus, a smooth transition to making Single Payer available to all.

    Great Britain only made the transition to a National Health Service because of World War II. Afterwards, the country was in an EXTREME situation....really dire.....and the government (and The Elite) felt they had to do something big to reward the nation for its sacrifices in the war.

      incrementally anyway. Didn't Obama and others say this was the start of reform? I don't think he was planning on turning the healthcare system over in the fall. That doesn't sound like him.
