Universal health care is not what this country is about, and to compare it to education and police force is rediculous. We are talking about insurance not health care. Everyone gets healthcare already, so why add to the expense? Why make the middle class pay even more than they already do? Universal health care is a giant leap toward socialism, so you keep laughing and we'll see how happy you are when your 70 years old and you're not going to get treated like dear old Ted. Make no mistake health care will most likely be rationed and quality of care will be reduced.
To the US? The country with one of the most expensive and yet poorest quality of health care among developed countries? I'm not talking about a health care system, I'm talking about the quality of treatment. US Health System Ranks Last Compared to Other Countries: Studies | CommonDreams.org
