    The term ‘single-payer’ is misleading, There should be more and less expensive single-payer options. ‘Single-Provider’ is what the Socialists really want. Only the government should provide health care insurance, NOT private insurance companies. SINGLE-PROVIDER!

      I get where you’re going, but in the health care industry there are three major parties involved in the incident of care:

      Patient : The person being treated
      Provider: Doctor, Hospital, Dentist, etc – the entity giving care to the patient
      Payer: Entity providing any payment to the provider on behalf of the patient

      So a single-provider system would mean one entity that provides care, kind of like if we just had U.S. Government Hospitals and all doctors, nurses and technicians were government employees (as if we need any more government employees – but I digress).

      A single-payer system means there would be no insurance companies other than the government. We would all only have a U.S. Health Insurance Plan, probably deducted straight from our paycheck and would more than likely be stuck with whatever the government chose to offer us – Medicare is a rough guide to what it would look like. There are no Medicare hospitals, just providers that offer care that the Medicare single-payer system will reimburse.

      I think you may have been alluding to something deeper, so I thought I would clear up the confusion around terminology so you could present the comment I thought you might really be considering.

    Three words Rich; Single Payer System.

    The holy grail of the liberal socialistic ideology.

    Democrats have no solutions to the mess thay have created. They never do as is shown in all of history. Liberals get into power, screw up America, then sit back and scream at the Republicans to fix it.
    The only time these idiots “appear” to have a decent solution for anything today, is when it is something proposed by Republicans first and they just try to claim it as a new idea of their own.
