    One of the proposals is NOT government run clinics and hospitals. It is to include everyone in Medicare and improve it to include dental, vision, and long term nursing care.

    No one would be denied coverage.

    I am very glad for the discussion.

    Solves nothing, and it's unethical...medicare payments are pathetic and beaurocratic, and providers can opt out...and choose to accept only private insurance. I personally would choose to opt out and purchase private insurance, unless of course you would deny me that choice.

    It would again result in lower wages for providers...lower wages than what unions demand, reflecting the counterproductive nature of pro-union, socialized medicine advocates.

    BTW, "Urban Indian Health Program" is apparently an acceptable phrase, but if you replace "Indian" with any other ethnic or cultural group, it's racist. I've been told so and restricted...even though the term I used reflects the origins of my name.

    One definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result. Our current health insurance system meets that definition.
