Everyone pays in and everyone is covered. If you want elite coverage, you can pay extra to elite doctors. This is an obvious answer to our healthcare crisis and works in other wealthy nations around the world. It is where we are heading, like it or not. And I donít know why you would not.

I bet most people, who are against single payer, can't remember the last time when they had a headache or the sniffles.

Or... If you want healthcare, buy it yourself.

And, then, their argument is "I don't want to pay for other people's health care" as if that's not exactly what insurance is.

The difference is that with insurance, you have the option not to buy it. Or, at least you did before the disaster known as bongo-care came around.

What does that have to do with anything that I said?

A person who is never sick and who pays for insurance and who says that they don't want to pay for other people's health insurance, is confused about something.

Sounds like you're the one who's confused.

Not true at all. Even before the ACA, if you collapsed in public dying of a heart attack, no one's going to ask if you'd like to purchase medical help. They'll call 911 whether you like it or not. An ambulance would arrive, like it or not. Hospitals would perform whatever services are necessary to stabilize you, like it or not. And you'd be stuck with the bill.

Healthcare was never strictly voluntary.
