. I'm concerned with having the best system possible, which would mean going to a universal, single-payer system.That's an oxymoron. The best system possible would never be a universal system.
Wrong. (Not that they never increase costs, but as stated, it is false.)The government doesn't cut costs. See the inablility to work out a budget and our mult-trillion dollar debt.
Wrong.There are no consequenses to the government for the government making bad decisions. The can't go out of business, they can't be sued, they get paid no matter what.
Zero health care.
That's an oxymoron. The best system possible would never be a universal system.You're not even trying anymore.
The government doesn't cut costs.It can and does in many cases.
This is truth. You don't want to believe it, but it's true and you can't argue it.As I said, you're not even trying now.
I can assure you that when I was working 80 hrs a week in the trades, I did not have the time or the energy to spend all day postin BS on a public website with a computer. Even if you don't believe the garbage you post, it is still very tiring to listen to it. Millions of people work harder than you do.BURN!
Just like you probably don't believe Barack Obama is a "Natural born American citizen."Yes I do.
PS - It really doesn't matter one iota to me as to whether you believe that I worked 80+ hours a week in the trades without health insurance.
You're not even trying anymore.
It can and does in many cases.
As I said, you're not even trying now.Like I said, you have no argument.
Apparently you did not understand my reference. I guess I must take responsibility for that. Allow me to explain. During the Guilded Age we had a much smaller government like you advocated in your post. Also, during the Guilded Age there were virtually no government regulations of businesses as we were following an economic policy called laissez-faire. The end result was a growth of very powerful, and unregulated trusts (a union of monopolies) that threatened free enterprise itself by destroying the very competition we depend on which thereby appeared to be bringing Karl Marx's prediction that a capitalist country haswithin itself the seeds of it's own destruction to fruition.Like, during the Guilded AgeNo. It's 2013 bro.
