National health care failed in the 1990s when Clinton tried it because the middle class who already has great health care saw that national health care would reduce the quality of the care they received and increase their health care costs. That's why it's always failed to date.
Fair enough. I agree with this. However, fewer and fewer middle class people are being covered by their employers. It was in the 60%s a few years ago and is now down to about 54% I think. As the percentage dips below 50%, 40%, and lower there WILL be a change here. It's inevitable. It's just that most middle class people aren't feling the pain yet. And certainly not our representatives, who have lovely government-provided insurance. But wait five, ten years and we will have some kind of national health care instituted. And it will be because the middle class are affected by the problems currently emerging.
