you think you waited in line for healthcare when you were one of the small percentage of americans in the publlic system.  just wait and see how long the "lines" are when the entire country is in the system.

I agree with the democrats (and Republicand for that matter) that we need a better way of making sure more people (ideally all people) in our country can afford propper healthcare. however there are just too many ways that a universal single-payer program would diminish the quality of healthcare for everyone who already has it.


We have a national public health care system.  It is an atrocious system, with many many things wrong with it, and getting worse by the day; but is still miles better than what most US citizens have to manage with at present in regard to health care for those who don't have empoyer's health insurance (and even some who do).

You mean the nation that openly embraced slavery (I know that it was a controversial issue, even amongst the founding fathers, but in the end, it was accepted).
