Would universal health care lead to inferior care

The issue of a universal type of health care has not only been one of great discussion between political parties for the last several years, it is one of the themes of the current presidential campaign. There are almost as many opinions and political spins on the issue as there are candidates, with everyone seeming to make at least some valid points. According to this editorial by Truth Dig’s Eugene Robinson, not only are Rudy Giuliani’s figures about prostate cancer survival rates in the United States and Britain wildly misleading, he’s also wrong on his general point: that a single-payer system, of the kind that Republicans call “socialized” medicine, inevitably would deliver inferior care.

Would universal health care lead to inferior care? Of course it would! Why anyone thinks that if the government gets in charge of health care it would be better is beyond me. Any problems that the current health care system has now is because of government regulations. Would our food be better if it was provided by the government? YUCK! Who would want that? Do people think it will be free? It won't be! The government will steal money (they call those taxes) to pay for it.
