<<I asked for an example of why a single-payer system might be not better than our current system. I some fairly bizarre comments that had nothing to do with position from you. Tele went off on a rant about fat people and illegal immigration. Ravvt gave me an example of problems with a multi-payer system, and then seemed to get huffy when I pointed that out. >> You see, you ignore the statement I made to begin with:I value a system of personal freedom and liberty. You are willing to sacrifice those values for other purposes.<<I'm a pragmatist. Single-payers systems have demonstrably better outcomes at a much reduced cost. Them's the facts. That's why I'm in favor it. >> So you're a pragmatist. Fine. You are willing to buy into an elaborate system of big government and government control of a large chunk of the economy and what has been personal decision making. I am not. That's really the essential issue and clash of values in my view.I don't think you are willing to acknowledge that, which means (in my opinion) you aren't being honest with yourself.<<I asked for an example of why a single-payer system might be not better than our current system. >> This was the question you posed. I again repeat my answer, which is that I value a system of personal freedom and liberty, something you are willing to sacrifice in order to get what you want. I don't expect you to agree with me. You should be able to understand that my reply is a legitimate answer to the question you pose, even though you don't agree with the values that cause me to object to the plan you favor.Seattle Pioneer
