I'm a physician. Before you start running off your mouth about the wonderful things with a single payer medical system Hamblin, why don't you tell us what your occupation is and then the rest of us can advocate for a single payer system for your industry. Then after a couple of years tell us how much you like it.
Til then, shut your mouth.
O.K. Crazy: You are a physician so inherently you don't want to have anything to do with a single payer system. Why? Because you won't make as much money, and the paperwork would be increased since governments are in the cover your ass business!
I am a retired Nuclear Power Plant Startup Engineer and an 11 year veteran of the Nuclear Submarine Service. My comments come from my good experience with the Spanish single payer system which I used for about 10 years. All of the things that you guys on this thread are blithering about are non-existent in a good single payer system. I have had to change my Medicare Advantage plan three times in three years because the G.P. that I like has dropped out of the Humana network and then out of the Cigna network, I am now with United Health Care and so far it is very good, especially with medication costs, out of six meds that I take I only have to pay for one.
