You hold LOTTERIES and the winner gets treated? And you think the US healthcare system is somehow superior to the European universal healthcare system?

AD, you really should give up this "it is your way or our way" and our way is superior tactic. It makes you look exceedingly silly. Do you really contend that the two are the only means for healthcare disbursement?

I don't think anyone on this board would endorse our healthcare system as it is presently configured. In fact, in my view the example you point to in this instance is a measure I would be against........starting with medicare drug coverage to begin with. It is my view that you have no "right" to healthcare via universal coverage or a get lucky lottery. Now, I am a compassionate guy and willing to discuss providing for people that can't afford it. But, it is not by some "right". And, it is an entirely different discussion than the general procurement system (free markets / socialized etc.). It is strategic that socialized healthcare proponents wrap it all togethor into a mishmashed pile of jello.......because without the "but, oh the poor children / elderly" pleas the case for third party (worse yet single payor - government) payment has no merit.
