    Having lived roughly 50 years under a single payer health care program, I fail to see what argument caries any weight among thinking individuals. Most of Europe,Canada and any number of other nations, have a single payer program and it works smoothly and fairly. I have received individual care from the same physician, have undergone major surgery and rehab with better care than in the US where the patient kills him/herself (if he/she gets well enough after treatment) paying off his/her medical bills! One wonders why one bothers to recover since he/she will never recover enough to survive the costs of medical care in the USA. Of course, that does not take into consideration members of Congress, diplomats and the 1% who either have complete coverage or is as rich as God and can afford any and all care.

    P.S. One might note that the people’s representatives who get complete coverage are against the same right for their constituents.

      I received a note from this site after I had submitted a comment. The note said that I had submitted my comment prior to the note I had just sent. I’m sorry, but this is the first time I HAVE BEEN IN TOUCH WITH THIS SITE. Someone else must have had some thoughts akin to mine and expressed them. But they were my first comment.

    I’m beginning to think that appealing to our sold-out leaders on both sides is a waste of our time and energy. We need to cut to the chase and use the courts directly to end healthcare discrimination in America, and make healthcare justice and equality for all (based on medical science instead of who we are) the law of our land (like marriage equality only different). The evidence and facts show that the only way to accomplish this affordably and sustainably is with a not-for-profit public plan.

    Healthcare is should be a right in our constitution listed with the Bill of Rights. The most powerful country in the world spends Trillions of Dollars fighting needless wars like Vietnam and Iraq. This money could of been spent for a single payer healthcare. Such a great nation we need to change our priorities from war to healthcare in which would eliminate the middle class and the poor from loosing their jobs do to their health. This would help to boost the economy and help people to get back to work
