George Will predicts Obamacare to become single-payer because of this inconvenient fact

1. Markets work in some things and not in others.

It doesn't work in a market like health care where the demand for it is inelastic. That's why all industrialized democracies have some form of universal health care.

2. I hope that's true.

And I wouldn't call Will an ultra-conservative; he's more what you'd call an old-school conservative like William Buckley. There aren't a lot of those left in the GOP any more. I don't agree with them but at least you can have a civilized argument with them.

4. Not everything should be a for-profit industry

Healthcare and education should be public services run by the gov.

5. There can be private care

for cosmetic surgery and a few other optional things. Melania won't have to go to the public hospital.

6. It's going to happen because common sense and math!

eventually these posers in Congress will be gone and the facts will force us into a nationalized health care service for anyone who can't afford insurance. We are going down as an economy if we don't, and those fuckers who are fighting it are only there to enrich Big Pharma and Insurance. Their base can't be fooled forever.

7. He's right. Obama knew this wouldn't be ideal

but he also knew it would be much better for many and would ultimately lead to the public accepting - and possibly demanding - single payer.

8. Some conservative - can't remember who - stated on TV,

"Thanks to Obamacare, Americans think they have a right to health care."

Shameless asshole.
