    But all of this builds on some very common foundational misinformation.
    To many of these people, "universal health care" means government run. It means a UK style National Health system, comparable to the VA.  They don't differentiate between "universal care" which is "everybody gets care"; and how that care is paid for (i.e. single payer, like Medicare; or "governemnt run", or even all done by for-profit insurance companies)

    Given that basic assumption, everything else falls in line. It won't be your doctor discussing end of life care - it will be some government employee assigned to you by the government plan. You won't be discussing the problems in your marriage with a counselor you picked out - maybe even one who is part of a faith based counseling center. Your family will be guided by some "government employee". Etc.
