(average life expectancy after 65 for men and women, respectively)
    you are oblivious to the fact that the taxpayer is going to pay for the healthcare of those in poverty now and that we don't have 320 million living in poverty.

    Don't you think Canadians would riot if people regularly died waiting for life saving procedures? You're assuming Canadians are just dummies.

    So, all of the doctors are going to just leave the country? And where are they going to go? Every country on the planet that's worth living in has UHC. Or do you think they're just going become carpenters after spending all that time and money on their education?

    Damn! Right wingers are stupid! No, single-payer is NOT like the VA. You're not allowed to discuss issues you have no understanding of.

    Actually, while we all bitch about the DMV and the USPS, what would be the alternative? Privately run? Now there's a nightmare.

    Hey, perhaps we should INCREASE pollution and carcinogens, maybe air PSAs about the benefits of unhealthy eating, smoking, drug and alcohol abuse...we could eliminate DUI laws and speed limits, maybe institute assisted suicide for everyone, and up the age cut-off for abortion from 20 weeks to 200 weeks ....tens of millions dying off or killed while young...that's about the only way a UHC system will have a prayer in America.

    but what do we do? we actively and passively IMPORT more poverty from the Third World, of course.
    This is just stupid. Your national philosophy is, "We're the CAN'T do nation."

    Everyone is talking about having the costs deducted from their paychecks. No one has said they want to get something for nothing.

    Many Doctors are actually speaking in favor of Universal Heallth care. We have such a pee poor glut of different programs the average person can not navigate them.

    Yes, and they're not just difficult to navigate it's very expensive to navigate them.

    Now,here is Lindsey Graham out there shooting," This is your last chance!" He does not bother to mention his plan would kill health care for millions.

    I am reaching a point where I almost wish the vicious old dogs would kick the bucket,and that is terrible to even think!

    My DMV works just fine. I wish we had a health care system that worked as well.
