Actually, the Obama administration floated the single-payer concept during the ACA negotiations as well, Josh--well after 2003, of course. Single payer would dramatically reduce wasteful administrative costs, and it has worked just fine in a number of advanced countries. As numerous posters on the Fool have repeatedly pointed out, private health insurance companies offer _no_ added value to the equation.

THe fact that any group of folks pointed out that government is better and cheaper in the long run after it eliminates all concept of competition is not surprising.

Monopolies are always the best long term solution and work so well every time they are established there is never any problem there. As long of course as there is no greedy capitalist to milk profit.

The easiest and most obvious one to look at, and the way progress was at the speed of light, services never decreased and price was asa low as imaginable of course is the Post Office.

The fact that folks you suck up to say stupid stuff does not make it so.
