Count Me In

The more time I spend dealing with the health care system the more perplexed I become. Yet I'm dealing with it from a position of relative safety; we have Medicare plus our supplemental insurance and so far all is well. Bills are paid and co-pays are manageable. So, if 'economy of scale' has any bearing on the cost of health care, and it should, extending Medicare to ALL of the citizens would result in lower health care costs for all. Yikes! But that would be socialized medicine! And what's wrong with that? We already have socialized fire protection and police protection. We have socialized schools…so why not socialized medicine?
