We have a tendency in America to argue for or against a concept based on our own personal philosophy or view of the world, what advances our personal interests, or the interests of our party, family, organization, or region. Perhaps viewing the issue from a management or systemic perspective might result in innovative approaches to the issue. The American national mindset, citizen philosophy, lack of citizen motivation to be proactively healthy, and governance model make the socialization of health care in America very problematic, particularly at this point in time. A country needs to know its limitations.

Thanks for the post, I think you found a precise way of explaining something very complicating and something people are very passionate about. I agree with you that our system is not as effective as many other countries, but that the current plan in Congress isn't the best solution. I don't think it will work well if a government plan is competing vs the private sector. Instead, I believe it would work much better if the private sector supplemented a core healthcare plan provided to all Americans by the government.

I could write a book about the corruption going on with the government and health care reform. This is bull. Canadians come to the U.S. for better treatment and because the line is too long there. Open your eyes. The government is taking over. Also, The healthcare bill includes racial preferences. Under the Democrats' health care bill, if a medical school wants to increase its chances of receiving many different kinds of grants and contracts from the federal government, it should have a demonstrated record of training individuals who are from underrepresented minority groups. This is because the Democrats' health care bill requires the Secretary of Health and Human Services to give preference to the entities that have demonstrated such a record in the awarding of these contracts to medical schools and other institutions. The bill does not state what would qualify as a "demonstrated record", so we can expect medical schools and the other entities to do whatever they think they can get away with to train as many "individuals who are from underrepresented minority groups" as they think they might need to have a better "demonstrated record" in this regard then other entities competing for the grants and contracts. The Democrats' health care bill creates a very significant financial incentive for medical schools and other entities to lower admission standards for "individuals who are from underrepresented minority groups" if that is what it takes to have the winning "demonstrated record".

I hope obama will resolve the solutions on health care program.
