14. The horror stories are being brought to you by the same people
who brought you the Swiftboaters. It's just more greedy coporate right wing fear mongering. I have been on the receiving end of "socialized medicine" since I joined the Navy in 1969. I've always received excellent care(and as an RN, I know excellent care when I see it), and have been able to see any specialist I've needed to see when I needed to see him/her. If I didn't like my primary care provider, I could chose another one.

Now that I'm retired,I'm in the TRICARE system. As such, I can see any Dr. who accepts TRICARE, I have a small co-pay, and my meds cost about $3.00/prescription at my local Publix pharmacy. I could get them for nothing if I went to the local VA hospital, but Publix is more convenient, and I save on gas by going there.

Do not believe the crap being spread by people who are in it for the almighty dollar. That's how they win, by keeping us DOWN, DUMB, AND DIVIDED! If single payer/public funded health care wasn't any good, do you honestly believe that members of Congress would avail themselves of it? I don't see any of them turning it down and begging for private insurance, do you? If it's good enough for them, it's sure as hell good enough for us.
