Single payer is a really bad idea.
Whenever the government gets involves, bad things happen. The people in Congress who pass out laws are too beholden to special interest groups like the AMA and the Health Insurance Lobby. The best interests of the individual are more often than not simply ignored.
Furthermore, single payer will not contain the necessary safeguard to keep costs down. This is why the Swiss do not have "single payer" as their health care system.
As an example of what happens when the government becomes involved just look at our federal tax code!
Why Switzerland Has the World's Best Health Care System
It would seem that a single-payer system would not have the expenses sales commissions, advertising costs, and multi-million dollar CEOs compensations.
That should go a long way to bring costs down, or, at the least, keep them from their upward spiral.

Reference my post #141 in this topic. It seems that AmericanIdle is attempting to pull a fast one by deleting a post that has been replied to and reposting it after the reply. Sure seems he's attempt to pull a fast one. Reminds me of 'Nighthawk'.
Note that post #140 has been deleted which was quoted in my post #141, he just repeated it in his latest post [ #145 ] to keep it on top.
