Gimme That Old Single Payer Rag

We spend so much money on health care in this country, yet we do not "lead" the world in taking care of our citizens. Just one example is infant mortality. We rank somewhere around 15th world in preventing infant mortality. How come? We don't have to "wait" for health care in the USA, like in some of those commie countries like Canada. Of course, I had to wait two months for an appointment with a foot specialist, then, once the problem was isolated, I had to wait another six weeks for the fix. Read Paul Krugman here for an explanation.
