Population & demographics of U.S.:
Now the UK:
And finally Australia:
All these super huge countries,that have their own unique single payer systems for just their countries, when combined equal a population of about 173 million. That's slightly more than half the U.S. population...
It's true that many countries with single payer systems have lower per capita costs:
However, only a simpleton would look at this and assume it is because of said single payer system that the cost is lower. There are numerous factors to consider. For example, Obesity in the U.S. is higher than all of the other countries listed:
U.S.: 35% = 112M
Canada: 30.1% = 11M
UK: 29.8% = 19M
France: 25.7% = 17M
Australia: 20.1% = 2M
Much like population, combined that's about 49M people that are obese in these "large" countries, which, again combined, is about 43% of the total number of obese across the United States. We, of course, know that obesity is a precursor to about 1,000 health issues and that obviously drives costs up.
That's one factor. There are plenty of others like the # of illegals getting treatment here for free or salary structure for example.
Maybe you should know what the fuck you're talking about before calling someone else an idiot...
The number one, two, and three largest reasons for "bankruptcy in our country" are Medicare, Medicaid, and social security. All three are GOVERNMENT PROGRAMS. I mean, you're joking right, you think going to a single-payer system will reduce expenditures, hilarious.
Ya, I didn't say that. I know it's a standard talking point for you, though.
Yes, that does, in fact, make him looney tunes.
Another retarded, but expected talking point of yours. Seriously, you need new material.
Lol, total non-sense.
