Re: My Problem with Universal Health Care

Depends on how you  define universal health-care. If you mean single payer or government control over health-care providers then probably no. I also don't believe health-care is a right.

However as an issue of national pride, and because I'm an altruist, I'd favor programs designed to ensure everyone who deserves coverage has access to it. As a practical matter a healthy population is an asset.

The issue is how does one go about this? I'd like health-care plans to be as individual, personal, and adaptable as possible with more choices, transparency, and managed at a level close to and accountable to the people under it.

My problem with the Obama plan and most of these plans is that they fit few or non of these parameters.
