I can't believe you really think any sort of "national health care " could work.  This is another goverment ploy to get controll.  In fact it is the ultimate one!  Talk about creating dependancy !!  No one would dare take any stand untill they looked at how there "Plan" was affected.  More important , it simply can't work.  As you may know , my wife is a registered nurse and I have done some winter work in a health care facility.  No matter how much money ( there would be less if any of the suggested forms of national helth care were in effect) is avaliable, there are simply not enough helth care people to go around.  Most , when picturing the industry, picture a neat hospital, where all is clean and orderly.  TV never shows, the people ,who doctors can't to get to in a timly manner.  They don't show old and ailing people laying in their own filth, because there are simply not enough people ( at any price) who are willing to clean them up promptly.  You are never told about nursers and doctors that work 24 hours straight  , often several days a week.  They don't talk about the waiting and emergancy rooms, already overwhelmed or about the inability of even the present system to get payments to the providers.  ( can you imagine the federal goverment taking over that !)  You don't hear about the hundreds of hours a year many in the industry have to spend filling out paper work, much of it to protect themselves from law suits, or for that matter , the very expensive insurance that most helth care workers must carry ( usually out of their own pay)  You never hear about how all this effects the workers themselves.  Many don't last more than a few years, because the stress is simply more than most people can take.  Then there is the example we see in Canada!  Now Andrew, I ask you how do you think nationalizing medicine is going to overcome all this and the obvious increase in people who would believe that helth care was "THEIR RIGHT"  Can't work!!  Won't work  Only a rabid socialist like Hillary ( the controll freek)  would propose such a scheme.

And, maybe with Hillary as President we'd finally get that national health care plan to fly...
