  •  Real socialized medicine would fix that. (1+ / 0-)
    Recommended by:

    The government owns and runs the clinics and the hospitals, just as it does the public schools.  Doctors and labs work for the people.  Period.  No fraud is possible.  Just like school teachers, the doctors are government employees.

    When my husband was in the Marine Corps, my family had socialized healthcare.  It was absolutely wonderful.  Call and get an appointment, and go.  Take the kid before he's so sick you're afraid he'll die.  No premiums.  No payments.  Nothing.  Just access to health care when you need it.

    However, I'm willing to accept single payer, in which the government merely handles the MONEY, and the actual care remains in private hands.  Incredibly, people keep referring to single payer as "socialism." It isn't.
