Stepping into the healcare debate

After reading XO's post and having stood on the sidelines for too long, I'm about to enter the debate.

First to everyone - STFU! Seriously, the shouting has got to stop. It's irksome and makes our nation look like a bunch of idiots.

Second, I've had private insurance - it sucked - a lot. Telling me that more private insurance is the answer to our problems makes you a non-serious participant in the debate. Suggesting we reform the current system is like suggesting we put a lock on the barn door after the cows have left.

Thirdly why don't we take a few clues from people around the globe who've dealt with this stuff already - you know learn from their mistakes? If we can't do better on this that Taiwan & Switzerland who both had healthcare systems as bad, if not worse than ours, I weep for our posterity.
