That's the only part of your post that I'd disagree with. Philippa has a history of posting unqualified nonsensical bullshit.
What always amazes me is how a people that refers to its head of state as the "leader of the free world" actually wants to debate whether they want to assist their fellow man/woman/child/baby/whatever when their health is at risk. Had I been born in the US into an uninsured family that wouldn't qualify for Medicaid, I would be dead by now. And even if you want to get into details about the impacts of universal health care on the economy: Switzerland has an excellent public health care system, and is the most competitive country in the world, according to the World Economic Forum. Norway, Germany, the Netherlands, Sweden and others have excellent public health care as well and still are in the top 10 of competitive countries.
This whole debate is nothing but a joke, at the expense of poor and ill American citizens.
