I really don't see how that is what he is recommending or how you get to that conclusion...As I wrote in my post above expanding on it a little: Medical equipment costs(regulations and contracts), patents(drug companies), monopolies(pfizer big pharma influence and control), ER wait times, Bureaucracy(increases ER wait times due to unavailable beds), technology(Medical system largely still on paper), frivolous law suits(Doctor patient relation is tarnished), Mental Health etc..)
Those are just some of the problems we face, none of them have to do with insurance coverage, insurance coverage is fine, people are not turned down for treatment, I would however agree that "Obama Care" did in fact address some insurance coverage issues...but at a great cost...and additionally these are only small problems as a consequence of the above issues.....how about please just read my post above.

Doesn't Europe have enough problems, why are you trolling American policies?
It did work at one time, not too long ago and they are more efficient with their resources because they HAVE to be. Whereas a government stooge (please, government stooges, please don't take this personal but bureaucrat is too hard to spell) has no problem with resources because as long as he spends all of his budget, this year, then he is guaranteed an increase, next year. A church or private charity has to live within it's means so they don't overpay for their goods and they don't lose money to waste. They are accountable.
I don't know what evidence there is that convinces so many that the government has the answers and the governed need so much protection, when, in reality, they need more protection from the government.
