I would be concerned that the doctor availability may be limited and that someone else would be choosing my doctor.

My biggest concern is if it would work.

When government gets involved with anything it becomes more complicated, with more paperwork. It is never simple or understandable.

Private insurance will disappear. Fiscally accountable private insurance companies cannot compete with a government plan that can deficit spend and print money.

US government has not run anything well except :: defense, fire, police, and many educational institutions (but not all).

If Obama shows us that gov't can run Medicare, THEN try big UShealth.... right now though, Medicare is bankrupt!! WHY put more of our hard earned money into a USA-run health system that can't fails EVERYtime???

@BKSpirit: Has Obama demonstrated aptitude at anything yet while in office? All the guy does is permanently campaign. He's an empty suit and certainly not the 2nd coming of JFK, as the media would like us to believe. JFK had intelligence and had a knack for "gut feelings" that turned out to be true (funding the Space race in order to keep the Cold War cold, naval blockade of Cuba as response to Cuban Missile Crisis, and so on ).

If Obama were President in 1963, we would have bent over and grabbed the ankles when S-N-3s were shipped to Cuba while sending around Clinton in burqas to the middle east to try and broker a deal with the Soviets and he would have diverted the funds from Apollo in order to ensure that all Americans had an adequate supply of Tang.
