System works now, even for the uninsured

Q: Universal healthcare sounds like a great thing. Is it?

A: It might not be if the plan to deliver it costs more that we are spending today as a society and especially if the actual care that it delivers is less than what we all enjoy today. Today in America virtually anyone who needs emergency medical care can receive it by going to the ER at a public hospital. The short term payments the care facility must receive just to keep their doors open will be covered by the Payee of Last Resort: The American Taxpayer. That's the state of medical coverage today. Most of the political plans that are currently being floated for Universal Healthcare in America involve both increasing federal government bureaucracy and further regulating existing private health insurance providers. Doing the first thing increases costs in a way that cannot be forecast. Doing the second could add even bigger burdens to the very organizations we say we want to task with providing all that care.
