Why the hurry? Here's why.
Why the Health Care Rush? - WSJ.com
Um ... yeah. Starting to see that knee jerk is bad now? Both sides?
Nothing intelligent is ever done in a hurry. Witness TARP.
Most government run health plans are an exercise in Euthanasia anyway. Maybe 0bamacare will be the solution to the solution to the Social Security funding problem and the issue of medicare funding as well.
So they will try and push this fast. They have the votes, as long as they move quickly.
Hillarycare died because they let it hang out too long, and people saw what was actually there. 0bama won't make the same mistake.
By the time Obama is finished, his US National Line of credit won't be good enough to fund any damn national healthcare plan! LOL
The rush? Half of America will be poverty stricken if we continue with the hmo driven healthcare that currently exists for people.
Obama has already said there will be a better way to cover Americans with affordable healthcare for those who need it by the end of the year and he'd better do it.
the government can't do anything less expensively than the private sector why would health care be any different?
You sure about that, are you?
Perhaps you should compare the admin costs of Medicare v the admin costs of private insurers.
They're in exactly the same business, but the Medicare, you will discover if you bother to look it up, is about 500% more efficient than the private companies.
That is about the most compelling argument that the single payer folks have for implementing that system, actually.
Junk stat, even if 500% is accurate. Which I doubt. Medicare administers only one benefit, and shifts costs to private insurance. So private insurance picks up the "administrative" cost of the same services.
The single payer will be the government. The more people understand government will make their health care decisions, the less they want this.
You have tunnel vision. Even major health care providers are on board with the health care INSURANCE program (which is the only one on the table).
