Nationalized Health Care is Broken - John Stossel, Sep 19, 2007
One basic problem with nationalized health care is that it makes medical services seem free. That pushes demand beyond supply. Governments deal with that by limiting what's available.

"The Health care system in the United States is in desperate need of significant reform. Policy makers should take decisive steps to move today's bureaucracy driven, heavily regulated third-party payment system to a new patient-centered system of consumer choice and real free-market competition". The preceding quote was found on the web site.

What I believe they are trying to say and I agree completely is; the government needs to get out of the health care business. This includes the Federal, State, City and also employers. Universal health care is not the solution; private companies will handle this much more efficient and costs will be reduced as well. The main reason that health care is so costly now is the waste, fraud and abuse of bureaucratic ineptness and bungling. The congress must reduce health care regulations and taxes, pass liability limits, and get out of the way.

I am sure there are very few, if any, that has not heard that 40-45 million people do not have health insurance. I have even heard some say that fore mentioned number do not have health care. This latter statement is completely bogus. Everyone, legal citizens, people who are here illegally or otherwise, has access to health care. Those that do not have insurance or means to pay are not denied health care. They may not get it where or when they want, but they can and do get it.

Back to that number (40-45M) that do not have health insurance. There are many reasons that one may not have health insurance.

A first group are those who may have lost health insurance between jobs and are uninsured for less than a year before a new job is found. They are counted as having none for the entire year.

A second group are many young workers (mostly single) who choose not to have health insurance. They have different priorities than those who are married and older.

A third group are those who for financial reasons cannot afford to buy it on their own or through an employer that may have it available. This group should be the only ones counted. The number of people who really need and want health insurance drops to 10-15 million. This is still a large number, but a big difference from 40-45 million.
