    I guess matching tax revenue to the bills that have to be paid is old-fashioned, unpopular, and will never happen again until the economy collapses from over-indebtedness. Think back to when Eisenhower was president and there was a high tax rate, balanced budgets, and the economy flourished.

    Where are the days when people took responsibility for their own interpersonal relationships. Relationships have always had over aggressive partners, and the other partner knew how to handle the situation – a warning, a slap, walk away, whatever. Why do people now have to run to the media for vindication?

    Republicans don’t realize that if you want stuff you have to pay for it. Invasions, occupations, and a thousand military bases around the world are costly. You don’t pay for them by reducing revenue.

    That traffic is a two-way street. Tens of thousands of Americans seek affordable treatment outside the country. American medical technology is first rate, but often outcomes are no better or worse. Access to the masses is poor because of cost. Life expectancy is lower in US than many other developed countries.

    The voters – it’s a democracy.

    I am pro-choice where it makes sense to be pro-choice (widgets, etc.) and anti-choice where it does not make sense (fire departments, police departments, the military, etc.). The competitive model works well for developing medical technology and medical devices. It does not work well for providing affordable health care. The American for-profit system costs about double other world healthcare systems, and health outcomes are often no better or worse. WHO rates the U.S. health care system about 37th in the world. Life expectancy in the U.S. under for-profit health care is about 78 years compared to Canada under single payer at about 81. The facts seem to support something other than for-profit health care as being the desirable model. If your choice is bloated profits and salaries to the health care industry, go for the profit system; if you want affordable health care for the masses, that is not the rational choice.

    Some things work best under the profit-motive competitive model and some things do not. Medical care does not. If you get hit by a bus, you do not want to shop around for medical treatment. Medical treatment is highly standardized – the providers all have to meet certain standards and basically provide a similar level of care. Granted some practitioners may be more proficient or more experienced than others, but under single-payer you often are able to select your practitioner. So far as where Canadians would go for medical treatment, they would stay at home and get world class care. A more relevant fact is that thousands of Americans would not have to go to third-world countries for affordable treatment (medical tourists).
