Thanks Dandelion. I believe consumer views are the most important when assessing such choices.

I think more and more are "getting it" Arild, it takes awhile for the brainwashed to come out from under it. Now they must tackle the Corporate Monster that is in front of them. Big Pharma and the Insurance Industry is real and massive and a tough nut to crack.

Shared to make people aware. I had it in the UK. Yes, they are having problems due to mishandling of the money. There are waiting lists, however, that's not everywhere. It can be a bit of a lottery for some, but your doctor puts you on a priority list as to the need for speed for specialists. However, you can take out health insurance which is a fraction of the cost of US insurance and you can eliminate waiting to see a specialist. I NEVER had a problem getting seen by my GP or Nurse Practicioner same day or next day if I needed it. My friend needed a hip replacement and was going to have to wait her turn based on priority of pain for 6 weeks, she opted to pay out of pocket at a private hospital to get it quicker. It cost her the equivalent of $11,000 and that was with a 3 day hospital stay as well as the latest hip replacement surgery technique. You cant get out patient tests for that low of a price in US because the government doesn't regulate what they can charge.

Agree with others that we need to fight harder here in the US to get better healthcare. No "ifs," "buts" about it. We are sick of being ripped off by insurance and drug companies. Their fees/costs are insane. Thanks Dandelion

Americans get really confused about the difference between single payer and socialized medicine. I found this video uploaded in 2009 by Steven Crowder:

Socialized medicine is paid for by taxes; but the hospitals are run by the government. The doctors work for the government and get paid by the government. With single payer, the hospitals are independent from the government and the doctors can work for themselves or as part of a clinic. Hospitals on military bases generally would fall under the category of socialized medicine. The doctors, corpsmen and women are members of the military. The VA also uses socialized medicine.

To learn all you can about single payer, go to

Whatever questions you might have, the Pysicians for a National Health Program may have an answer.
