The prime example of government health care is the VA hospital system. Those who are familiar with the VA usually go there only for routine check ups or as a last resort. It is single payer, but it is not efficient. The unintended consequences and bungled roll out of Obamacare are carrying on the tradition of government medicine; decisions are made by civil service bureaucrats far away in Washington, waste and inefficiencies abound, things go wrong and seldom is anyone held responsible.

Re Tekakaromatagi

Assuming this grandmother was an innocent person it is unfortunate that she died but you neglected to mention the terrorists that were killed in the strike, the people they had killed in the past and all the people they were destined to kill in the future. Probably a net of 50+ people's lives were saved as a result of this drone strike.

The paranoia of it all.
Right wing legislators, media, Republicans, and, "famous" radio hosts will do and say anything and everything to stop the ACA.
Not having the funding that Mitt Romney has for betting large amounts of $ on issues.....
Everyone knows if a Republican President had initiated the ACA, all the problems would simply be "just little glitches to be worked through, Not to worry".
Wanna bet?

Re Tekakaromatage

Are you taking into account all of the grandmothers lives who are saved with each terrorist that is killed?

Nothing has improved, you just replaced an insurance company with a government bureaucrat, who will make the exact same decisions and be colder (death panels, as written into law as part of a subsequent stimulus bill), and worse you will have no where else to turn.

Obama has been preaching this for over six years.

Why an attitude change now?

@Pagan--Why should tax dollars go to either. Tax dollars are money forcefully taken from the people.

Your figures of four trillion dollars, and 500,000 lives, is highly exaggerated.
