Only a naive child would believe single payer health care is superior to the free market solution.

Details aside, all one has to do is look at the world around us to see what an utter failure it has been whenever and wherever tried. Some countries may have been able to hang on for longer than others, but the results are the same; Sweden, Iceland, Venezuela, and not to mention the old USSR.

It always comes down to the fact that eventually you run out of other people's' money to give away.

No matter how benign at inception, it always leads to tyranny. When the money runs out (and it always does) then the walls come up to keep citizens in, not out.

The failures of not teaching simple arithmetic and world history in our schools is dangerously apparent.

The only premiums for private insurance being propped up by state government are a direct result of Obamacare, which everyone knows was merely the first step towards single payer. Leave it to Minnesota to screw that up as well!

No, it's not time for "employers to get out of the healthcare business."

But it is precisely the time for government to get out of the healthcare business. Look what bureaucrats have done to the VA.

In fact, run for the doors every time you hear a politician say, "repeal and replace." Get them out of it, period!

Some suggest businesses could increase profits and perhaps even give pay raises instead of insurance.

Only a child would believe the government would not find a way to get their mitts on that new profit. There go your raises, and you're left with no increase and no insurance.

Time to grow up, time to see reality and not just what you wish to see.
