So I'm going to direct you to Random Nuclear Strikes. Specifically this post, which everyone who doesn't want to see Socialized Medicine should read. Anyone who advocates government funded healthcare should first be brought to task on the fact that we already have a government funded healthcare system in this country - Medicare. To say that it is a total and complete failure would be a little off, but only a little. Because the gummint has fucked it up as only the gummint can.
The government has already proven that it cannot run a health care system. Do not give them a second chance. They don't deserve it. And you cannot risk your health on it.
