    Welcome, Blutogreg. You will find the contributors to USMessageBoard to be respectful and open-minded. I hope you enjoy your visits.

    I am sorry, I do not know what a single payer system is.

    Really? I find that if I throw people on my ignore list at least once a week, then they become respectful and open minded, because all the insulters and those looking for entertainment, are blocked.

    Yes, and probably others did, writing isn't the best for getting irony across.

    You mean the rich guy who pays off the politicians so he doesn't have to pay much in tax? The rich guy who employs lots of people and makes loads of money out of them? The rich guy who gets to use the US military and gets people killed for a quick buck? The rich guy who uses infrastructure but doesn't feel he has to pay for it? You mean, THAT rich guy?

    /---- Why any sane person would want Gubmint's One Size Fits All healthcare is mind boggling. Who would not only insist on Healthcare by the DMV but think it is superior the to the free market has no idea what a disaster it is. My neighbors are from Western Europe and speak of the rationed care and long waiting lists. They can't understand why a great country would latch on to a proven failure like Socialized Medicine no matter what pretty name you give it.

    Welcome! I see Hossfly has already posted "The thingy" so you're free to roam.

    You may want to consider some of these:

    Also it would be good to read here, as it encapsulates most likely 99% of postings. :

    Rules for Politics: A Reminder


    As for "fixing healthcare": Fixing healthcare requires fixing Congress, state comptrollers, and insurance lobbyists

    to where they go to jail for

    taking bribes.

    Taking away Congress's health plan and making them abide by the public market would be another route, (although

    not as good).

    This is something that has been snowballing for 20+ years, it will not go away overnight.

    Forgot the biggest: Tort reform. Defensive medical procedures waste resources. Let the Dr. do his job.
