Kevin, which Presidential candidate do you think has the best health care plan? And which one do you think has taken the most health care industry payola?

Single-payer health care seems like the best solution to me because it gets the profit motive out of the system so more of each health care dollar is spent going for health care needs instead of corporate greed.

Why do you think we haven't gotten universal coverage even 50 some years after it was first proposed?

Not the Mamma Cass!

The biggest problem with the cost and availability of health insurance is that too many want it to cover everything, including elective procedures like teeth whitening and cosmetic surgery.

Insured health care won't be popularly available until people get serious and stop being so greedy in wanting others to pay for their non-quality of life affecting elective procedures.

Not the Mamma Cass is somewhat correct.

Government health care should cover emergency care (of course), preventative care (like regular office visits), and common treatments for common maladies (like chemotherapy, CAT scans).

But the government should not be in the business of - and cannot afford to be - funding a healthcare free-for-all for experimental treatments, and elective procedures like cosmetic surgery.

But what about those procedures? Who is the government to decide what is important to me? And if it will save my life, I'll need all the help I can get. At that level, the government should just assist me financially and get out of the way. Limited help via health savings accounts, etc. helps out the medical bills, keeps the choice with the patient, and does not bankrupt the government.

Health insurance won't be afforable until we get rid of the profit motive from greedy corporations that make a killing by denying people health care. It's wealth care, not health care.

The doctors should decide what are real health care needs, not government. In the pay or die system doctors can't just focus on practicing medicine. They have to fill out more forms and insurance companies dictate who gets treatment.

Buy having one buyer (the government) they can negotiate better prices on drugs etc. like the VA does or like with Meidcare.

"come together and demand universal coverage" is the only way we can overcome this problem.If everyone will be under health care system then overall nation health will be better and it may be a good move towards healthy nation.
