Socialized medicine 
isn’t the answer

For those of you who think a government-run, single-payer health care system is the answer, you’re obviously not informed about the programs in Canada and Great Britain. They involve government making the decisions and rationing, with long waits to get treatment. The incentive for the doctors to provide good care is gone since they’re government employees. The people who get good, immediate care are the ones who have money and come to the United States. Many others die before they get treated.

Also, their systems are strapped financially, as is our government-run Medicare system, and there’s no money for research.

When has the government handled anything better than the free enterprise system?

If you think your health insurance is expensive now, wait until you see what the proposed free government system will cost you. Also, it still leaves many people without coverage.

We have a great health care system, that can obviously be much improved upon without socialism. There are many viable ideas on the table that will help.
