I think that the ability of politicians to skim spending power from Social Security "Trust Funds" and divert it to other purposes suggests that the Federal Government and our Federal politicians need take a back seat to NO ONE when it comes to slickering the rubes.The biggest problem I have with so many of the national healthcare arguments is they rely on the idea that federal government involvement in the process will lower healthcare costs.All of the ideas I've seen floated about have to do with controlling prices and have little to do with actually controlling costs. In fact, most of them seem to favor creation of a monopsony (which, like a monopoly, is inherently economically ineffecient).http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Monopsony
