The book written on, "The Military Guide to Financial Independence and Retirement", on sale now! For more info see "About Me" in my profile.
I don't spend much time here anymore, so please send me a PM. Thanks.

I'm sure the execs profiled would be delighted to outsource the provision of healthcare for their rank and file employees to the US taxpayer. The true question is, will these same execs going to be happy when it takes 9 months to get THEIR non-emergency MRI scheduled, as can be the case in other countries who have set up single payor systems?

My guess is "no" - and the creation / expansion of a two tiered system is really what's being requested.

Nothing that hasn't already been debated at length on this board and elsewhere.
