I was asked to start this thread, this was quick response to a comment didn’t check latest numbers, might be 97 cents vs, 62 cents now or a bit different. I had not really planned to defend this, on this fine morning, but here we go.

The government gets 93 cents out of every dollar taken in out to pay for healthcare, while the private sector gets about 67 cents to the providers, you've made a great case for socialized healthcare. We spend a lot more on healthcare than we welfare so fixing this first is an even better idea.

They all use more government.
