Single payer or something like the German health care system is the way to go!
Nope - there will be no single payer nor German style health care system in the US

And you know this how?

I think we'll have it in about 10-15 years.
Those my age are more in favor of it than old people.

A) No "German Style" is being proposed - anywhere. That is clue #1

B) There is not the stomach for a Single Payer system. As I previously have mentioned, to understand why, you really need to study up on the Constitution - especially the section dealing with Eminent Domain. Become very knowledgeable about the issue of "Taking" as it applies to Eminent Domain.

To put it simply - the United States cannot afford, financially, to become a "single payer" nation.

Again - study up on Eminent Domain - your answer is there.

Oh so because it's not being proposed it can't happen?

There is no stomach for single-payer system?
Rick Ungar - The Policy Page – The inevitability of an American single-payer health system - True/Slant

Eventually people are going to get fed up with their rising premiums and the shell game insurance companies like to play when people get sick.

The single-payer alternative | SocialistWorker.org

As I said before, more people my age are supportive of single payer than older Americans.

Again - if you understood the Constitution consequences of your "support", you would understand that the United States CANNOT afford, financially, a single payer system.

Support is wonderful.

But, that support does not pay the trillions of Dollars it would cost to go to a Single Payer system.
