Sorry I don't buy it. I don't trust the government to not impose strict central planning taking healthcare choices out of the hands of patients and their doctors. A system where the government sets the rules and leaves shortages of some services. The government has proven time and time again that they think they need to be all over everything. I have read more than one article where that is exactly the problem in Canada and the United Kingdom. With no competition I see the government setting salaries. You are living in the wrong country and that should not be . Most of the problems over the years ( even before the ACA ) is government intervention including the amount of paper work required to just to get through the day. The problems have escalated since. I also see more deficit spending . Every entitlement program is broke. That's just what it will turn out to be, another entitlement program. What I am really saying is If government can screw it up, they will. I have also read about the long waiting lines where they employ single payer . Many people from all over the globe come to the U.S. to get their health care. That is especially true on major health issues. There is a good reason for that. Despite denial from our friends on the left and from people who see the world differently we have the best health care in the world. That costs money. I have zero faith that a single payer system in the US will really fix any of our problems.
Like I said it is complicated and there is no perfect solution. The only perfect world is yet to come. Be glad to have that discussion with you.
