    COST OF UNINSURED.
    The cost of the medical insured is costing more than if affordable healthcare was offered by the government. Private insurers cannot afford to provide affordable and quality insurance for the uninsured and make a profit.
    If private industry took over healthcare for all the un-insured, medical care would be rationed and long waits would be the same a Canada.
    Ask any hospital that have closed because of having to treat the un-insured.

    And the cost of "free" Medicare/Medicaid is no less than ten times what it was projected.

    Let's just call it a wash.

    If hospitals keep closing under the currnet plan then we will wind up worse off and with medical care costing more and having longer waits for medical care.
    Simple math.

    Which presumes hospitals won't keep closing under the auspices of a gubmint takeover....A dubious claim, at best.
