What's wrong with UHC, IE socialized medicine? Simple. First, we have the best and most accessible Health Care in the WORLD. Want to change that? Put government bureaucrats in charge! How is the Federal Government (FG) doing with almost everything else it runs? Health Care is by far too important to put into the hands of another failed FG bureaucracy. The problems we have with Health Care delivery and cost are largely CAUSED by government meddling now (no space to go into that here). Yet the real issue is not Health Care itself because OUR HEALTH CARE IS AWESOME! The issue is who should pay for it. If not for that, there would be NO issue with Health Care that requires FG involvement. The article does not address this issue, but implies that the FG would simply provide it for free under UHC. When has that ever happened with anything? Think it's expensive now? Think it's not accessible now? Aren't our taxes high enough yet? Let's just turn all of our income, our property, and our assets over to the FG right now and let the FG take care of everything for us. No thanks, I'll take the free market any day. Individual liberty and personal choice is the best thing that ever happened to improve the human condition (at the human level). I'm not willing to give that up. Tyrants won't improve our lives, never have. Keep your hands off our Health Care!
