What's your opinion on the current debate for healthcare reform in the United States?

I think the US could work wonders for its people if it adopted a universal healthcare system like every single other developed nation in the western world. It's both cheaper and more effective.

Oh, and anyone that thinks doing this would turn America into a socialist country has never been to a "socialist" country

No really it's ridicolous how this is being handled. Most people dont seem to know what it's all about, yet are still able to vote...

Well the government has only taken over the economy now, and now our healthcare,

What is left for them to take for it to become socialistic?
Yeah.

Isn't it about a public insurance program, as opposed to a complete overhaul of the healthcare system?

I'm sorry, but I don't know a lot. Not my country.

A public Insurance program, similar to what us Canadians have seems like it would work wonders in the states.

Seriously, what's the big fear about socialism?

every other developed country, and many which are not has a universal healthcare system. Honestly, does it matter if the government is not following the exact system you want it to if it saves 45 million people from not having basic healthcare?

Universal heathcare is a horrible idea. Why should a morbidly obese 550 pound man pay as much as a fit guy half his age? Either the fat man will get inadequate healthcare or the fit man will have to pay much more then necessary. There is no one size fits all solution.

In France workers get 4 weeks paid vacation a year. In America, the mean vacation days is 8.2

That is the horror of socialism

We have socialized health care, not public insurance. We don't need insurance at all. Private Healthcare is illegal.


America isn't even trying to get Socialized health care, just universal health insurance for those who can't afford it.
