[IP] I am so sick of this!!!

I lived in Finland, and Universal Healthcare worked quite well there as well
-- and in the rest of Scandinavia.  Yes, it costs a lot of money, but no one
in Finland is without, and the cost is not incurred as a business expense by
private enterprise, so they are far less impacted by cost-cutting decisions
due to short-term economic needs and can make decisions regarding the
long-term benefit to the system.  Also, many doctors operate private
practices, so if you don't care for a public physician, you can always choose
a different one and pay out of pocket, which some people prefer.

It works very well in Sweden.  Maybe you've been looking at the wrong models.
