Re: Is socialized medicine in America a good thing?
I'm not a big fan of the ubiquitous state, and putting the federal government in charge of our health care seems yet another step in that direction.
I would much rather have full blown socialized medicine than the stuff that congress is dicking around with right now. Selling us out to the insurance companies is not my idea of "universal healthcare".
"The human race divides politically into those who want people to be controlled and those who have no such desire. The former are idealists acting from highest motives for the greatest good of the greatest number. The latter are surly curmudgeons, suspicious and lacking in altruism. But they are more comfortable neighbors than the other sort." -- Robert E. Heinlein
