Cya Rush, I'd love nothing more than to not have to hear about you anymore.

I would like to believe that Government run health care systems in the US would work.

But then I look at Medicare and Medicade, and they have no comparable features to a good system like Costa Rica. I am being shown no evidence nor am I being convinced in any other ways that we could accomplish what Costa Rica did.

Clearly, something needs to be done, but I have more faith in the private sector than the federal at this point, when considering *resounding success* of Medicare and Medicade.

If the health care reform bill actually provided for the elimination of those two programs and a total restructuring under another methodology, I might at least be hopeful. But without that, its still a pathetic bandaid, that I can't believe will have any significant positive impact.
