You live in such underdeveloped countries that you have to pay for people to help you when you are sick? Pay for others when you are able trough taxes, and they do the same to you when you need it the most.

Essersmith,

"A country that has been fighting socialistic concepts since before most of us were born."

Not true, in the 19th century prominent American economists were writing scathing critiques of the way European pirate capitalism shamelessly exploited the "Hindoos" and gave nothing of value back to society. We have been a Social Democracy for most of our history, current malaise notwithstanding. And it may interest you to know that in our latest health care merry go round over 70% supported the Public Option, which would essentially have given us what the rest of the western industrialized world has.

We are the original comeback kid, don't count us out yet.

@Kalimata
You misunderstood me. Im all for universal healthcare. Living in scandinavia I enjoy all the benefits of a remarkably good political system.

All im saying is: I agree, but good luck applying it to a country that have been fighting socialistic concepts since before most of us were born. They are not ready for it and they wont be for a long time.

Arguing back and forth is a moot situation since "we" are not going to give up the working universal healthcare that we know and have. And "they" are not going to admit that it might actually be a better solution...
And why would they? Its the land of the free and home of the brave with liberty and justice for all...
You know.. for some..

Mabey we should look at why they and pharm companies charge so much.

There's an interesting idea. Our government negotiates rates with these companies and the rates we have are much lower than yours. Definitely something worth looking at. However I foresee cries of "class warfare" if that were the case.
