    it seems the reason that shpilk was being casually dismissive of you is because he pointed out that you were wildly inaccurate in your description of the health care systems of Germany, Japan and Switzerland, and your response was to accuse him of cutting and pasting from a Wikipedia article -- when in fact, the information he presented could have been drawn from any number of perfectly acceptable sources after a few simple Google searches.  You know, the ones you apparently failed to do.

    •  When I googled his numbers, the first (0+ / 0-)

      hits were the respective Wikipedia pages.

      Furthermore, I was not wildly inaccurate in my descriptions of the health care systems of Switzerland, Germany, and Japan,  but I should have been more specific, I'll give him that. All I've meant to point out is that there are other ways aside from single payer to get universal, affordable health care.  

      Thanks for the belittling insult at the end.

      What is reading but a silent conversation?
