YES, it is decades past due that the United States join the rest of the civilized western world in providing a two-tier single payer healthcare system for all! It seems at times like we are the idiots of the Western Democratic world, working the hardest for the least benefits, the worst health outcomes for the sakei of corporate welfare. Let's take a wild leap out of the 19th century and seek to benefit corporate profit margins by fortifying the health and well-being of all Americans as opposed to the CEOs and Wall Street mavens. I have relatives in the U.K. Who have explained the ups and downs of their nationalized system. They can NOT understand why the US is so ass-backward. The U.K. has had nationalized medicine since just after WWII! For the sake of pretending that America is as deserving of every time someone chants "USA," let's grow the hell up and have single-payer healthcare for ALL already!
