Before we begin giving the Government control over an additional 17% of our economy it might be wise to debate the real subject. Here is a quote from BHO in 2003 (from todays Best of the Web, WSJ):

"I happen to be a proponent of a single-payer universal health care program. I see no reason why the United States of America, the wealthiest country in the history of the world, spending 14 percent of its Gross National Product on health care cannot provide basic health insurance to everybody. And that's what Jim is talking about when he says everybody in, nobody out. A single payer health care plan, a universal health care plan. And that's what I'd like to see. But as all of you know, we may not get there immediately. Because first we have to take back the White House, we have to take back the Senate, and we have to take back the House."

"Basic Health Insurance for everybody" is not insurance! It is WELFARE!

Do we really want to fix something as important to the individual as Healthcare with WELFARE? This is doing them and ourselves a disservice. But more importantly, how can we debate the subject with this purposeful obfuscation?

And finally - BHO does not want Single Payer?? Who are you Dems trying to kid!!
