Everyone pays into it and everyone will be able to use it. No more bankrupcies, no more death because a doctor couldnt see you, it would allow everyone to get coverage. It works great for euorpe, why dont we do it.

It's because people are stupid and want to insist that a private system is better even though it's killing people. I watched a 60 Minutes tonight a girl had to leave in patient treatment too soon and she killed herself because the insurance wouldn't pay anymore.
It doesn't matter if you have insurance or not if you still can't pay the premiums or get the medication or care you need.0

I strongly suspect the whole history of medical regulation in the USA, culminating in Obamacare has been at least partly designed to fail so the only reasonable solution will appear to be socialized medicine. You design a crappy program and when it fails you argue it only failed because it didn't go far enough so you expand it in an equally crappy way and repeat until you have a government run program and you can never go back. Then when it gradually ossifies and loses efficiency like all giant bureaucracies, there will be nothing you can do about it, It will be too big to reform.1
