I was listening to the radio the other day and there was chatter about other countries that have UHC. I know that's not exactly what the democrats are trying to do here, but the thing that woke me up was that they were saying that in other countries that if you go to the Dr. and they determine that you need additional testing and they can't get you in for that testing in a short amount of time, that you are barred from paying for the procedure yourself and that you basically have to wait until your turn. Is that something that is in the bills that the democrats are trying to forge together? Does this not concern anyone that supports the bill?

Do some research on the various hc systems utilized in the industrialized nations. There is 1 more than 1 type of system. Each 1 has pros and cons.

I don't know that the concern is off base since it hasn't been determined what will be in the final bill. That's why I am asking. The chatter that I was hearing was the similarities between what the democrats are trying to push and what other countries have. I was not saying that what we will have will be universal health care or public option.
