Don't Be Silly!

Together with the data — the overwhelming data that shows that our system is the most expensive and yet the only one in the industrialized world that doesn't cover all our citizens — this may the strongest argument for a single-payer system.
We are the only people in the industrialized world who pay out the nose for the privilege of playing roulette with our children's health.
Sure, Americans aren't followers. But is it really American to stubbornly stay the course with a deadly, incompetent plan, just digging ourselves in deeper and deeper?
My apologies. That was poorly argued.
Just because we also did it in Iraq doesn't make it American.
(Thanks, Dave, for the graphic.)
