27. We have multiple single-payer systems here, too.

What we have learned is that private insurance alone is untenable. To cover more people, we must move toward single-payer models. It's immatetial to me, though, just exactly what universal coverage would look like. If the rich want to keep a few doctors on retainer, fine...but as with school systems, they need to be taxed to support the systems that will keep the rest of us healthy.
