RE: "politicaly" which hand do you think I should cut off
Can we get the word "politically" spelled correctly in this thread title so I don't feel like I'm with a group of ignorant tards? Girl_nails

Thank you!

Props to me for using the oft-ignored manicure smiley.

The data say otherwise.

In the U.S., for every dollar you spend about 23% goes to overhead costs.
In countries with socialized medicine, that number is 7% - 14%.

Thats does not mean that universal care will make it cheaper for us. I am not sure how it is in other countries nbut we hav tons of paper work that needs to be filled out, our professionals may get paid more....there are a lot of things that could factor into it that universal will not help.

I can guarantee that on the political spectrum, the majority of Americans would find themselves to be relatively right-leaning.

Except for the ones that consider themselves to lean to the left....IE: the ones that voted in Obama. I have belonged to a politcally speaking messga eboard for about 8 years and the ones that consdider themselve dem, hace scored to the left on those tests and the rep have scored to the right.

The single-payer systems have been shown to cut costs.

My understanding is that the rest of the world (and those of you from the rest of the world, please correct me if I am incorrect*) see US politics as centre right to far right.... there is no left.

* extra points for getting the Scottish comedic reference here

Exactly. Hell if anything Obama is actually a Republican.

In fact, the democratic party no longer exists. You have the Republicrats, and the right wing nut job republicans.

Very constructive.Consider

You seem to want this not to be true.
