Re: “The Single-Payer is the Taxpayer

"Single payer failures" ? Oh ? You mean, like in Canada and England ? Where everyone is insured and where doctors pay attention to their patients rather than to what insurance codes to put on a form? While people in both Canada and England grumble about the fact that they sometimes wait for tests and surgery, folks here are not only waiting just as long or longer - due to haggling with their insurance companies - but people in the U.S. pay a lot more than in Canada and England. If our current system is so great, why do dual citizens go back to their other countries for health care? Face it. Our current system is too expensive and doesn't even serve the people who are working and getting health care as well as the "failed" systems in other countries.
