Works well, contains costs...

As long as government keeps it well funded it's not a problem.

Show me the bill, then I'll decide.

Nothing I've seen proposed to date passes muster for anything I would support, but then again, nothing proposed to date had the details and was really just political fluff rhetoric as opposed to actual policy.

I supported the ACA because it was a well thought out start down the road to actuall workable single payer, but since then all that's been done is political game playing with no real policy.

The Proponents of single-payer need to get out in front of the inevitable job shifts.

They should have a plan to help those displaced by such a seismic shift. Having employment options for those in the health insurance industry who will be affected is the enlightened way to make a revolutionary change like this.
