    I like the Swedish system the most. The Swiss model might not be bad either, where health insurance is mandatory for everyone and the insurers can only turn a profit on supplemental progams and not on basic coverage.

    Give us your best idea, then do the opposite......

    Past precedent of your thousands of posts proves it will work...

    The best system is called "Personal Responsibility".

    If we could have been "allowed" to purchase Health Care Insurance across state lines like I was able to purchase car insurance.I was able to save a bunch of money this way.

    Sorry I can't provide a link so I guess that makes me a liar......

    the new health care law actually allows for this.

    PPACA Section 1333 requires the parent department of CMS, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), to issue regulations governing the creation of “health care choice” compacts by July 1, 2013.

    Starting Jan. 1, 2016, two or more states will be able to use a compact to allow qualified health plans based in the participating states to sell health insurance in all participating states.

    The private sector with the help of Doctors running it. Cost is a lot less than government run health care.

    Zarephath Health Center

    It costs them 13 dollars per patient.
    A Government run one that is similar costs 140 per patient.

    your link for a private health care providers shows what exactly?

    "It costs them 13 dollars per patient.
    A Government run one that is similar costs 140 per patient"
    is not proven by your link nor is a truthful statement. :cuckoo:

    That's terrible that your ideology for big government blinds you to public run clinics that work and all have proven to be cheaper than government run clinics.
    So you are calling Dr. Alieta Eck a lier?
    She is the one who said this on the news.
