### There is not a shred of evidence that government controlled health
care is better than provided privately, in fact, all reliable evidence
points the other way (plastic surgery, lasik, Singapore). But, you
prefer not to see it, and cling to meaningless fakery (international
outcome comparisons between various flavors of government control)
that is trumpeted up as evidence. And then you compare us to Marxists.
Go figure.
