I would support gov't healthcare only if the people getting it had to meet certain specific requirments.
1. Reckless behavior that results in you getting hurt will be your own cost. I.E. Motorcycling with no PPE, skateboarding with no PPE...etc. If people are going to help you pay for your healthcare costs, then the individual will have to show responsiblity in their actions.
2. If your obese, your doctor will put you on a exersize routine and diet. As long as the person makes adequate progress (3-6 lBS) a month than they will continue to recieve gov't funded healthcare, for every month that they do not meet satisfactory progress, they will have to foot 20% of the overall treatment bills resulting from their obesity.
3. There will be a 20$ co-pay per visit, this will keep people from habitually going to the ER everytime they stub their toe.
4. If you smoke...100% related costs to you....If you drink or use recreational drugs...100% on you.
The problem that myself and many other americans have with a single payer system is that there would be many people unwilling to subject themselves to requirments such as these to recievegov't healthcare.
With communial responcibility comes individual accountability.
