Why do people believe that socialism will work here in the U.S. when it's always failed everywhere else?

Socialized healthcare is a terrible mistake but so many people seem enamoured of it or a government ran socialized health insurance. Why don't people understand that this will drive up the costs for everyone and make it more difficult to obtain? People in Canada cross the border into the U.S. daily to use our healthcare system and people in Great Britain die waiting for Cat scans. Socialism has never worked; yet many people here seem to think it's the way to go.

87% of people in Canada are satisfied with their healthcare system. A few people crossing the border does not mean the system failed. Did you know that people from the US go to other countries to get operations performed. Look it up, it is called medical tourism. Does that mean our current system is a failure?

People "think" such a health care plan would be a "given". They do not realize that we will be taxed to death. It's not just the socialistic healthcare, it seems more and more politicians are of the socialistic "mindset". This "mindset" is NOT good for our country. Big, Bigger, and Biggest Government does NOT work... More

I don't believe that such programs are going to work. However, I'm still voting for the Democrats because a "Universal Health Care" program is far less wasteful than that pointless war in Iraq or the planned War to overthrow the government of Iran (all we've done in Iraq is strengthen al-Qaeda and increase how hated...

I don't know where you got the idea that national health care doesn't work. I've asked a lot of people from the UK, Australia, Canada, etc., "Should we do the same?". The answer has never been no. Not once. And they don't die waiting for cat scans. They do wait a bit for surgeries and procedures that are not... More
