It turns out that problem with forcing government-run healthcare on us degenerate underclasses is that stupid old-fashioned definition of "freedom."
You know, the one where freedom consists of being left alone? Tut, tut, we are told, "..let us not forget that we as a society created our government to make our choices..."
Y'know, I kinda didn't; nor can I think of a single example where government intervention results in my having more uncoerced choices.
You will not be surprised to learn that this cool, rational philosopher-king is "is director of the Master in Public Health Program at Tufts University School of Medicine." Nor that he considers ending fee-for-service medicine a "must." Oh, boy, gimme a doc enjoying the same employment setup as an IRS auditor; I'm sure she'll be deeply, deeply concerned about my health.
