You ignore your nutrients...which will be classified as illegal substances. You ignore your subconscious, which is being melded by advertisements, television, movies, text books, and the media
You intend to use those criticisms as a reference as to WHY Americans should EMBRACE Government sponsored healthcare?
If the Government is going to classify nutrients as illegal then I DAMNED SURE don't want them running my Doctor's office!
And whoever starred your post is at LEAST borderline retarded.

If you want to know who writes the rules of the health industry, why they drop people, read the testimony of Wendell Potter. the head of the health industry lobby for the last decade.
Dohoney announced plans to layoff 319 city workers including 138 police officers, saying there was no other way to make a dent in the deficit.
An estimated crowd of 500 people attended the meeting Thursday night on the second floor of the Duke Center in downtown Cincinnati. One by one, residents went to the microphone to make their opinions on the layoffs heard by city council members, Dohoney, and Mayor Mark Mallory. Some were city workers, pleading for their jobs.
As he entered the auditorium of the Mardela Middle and High School on Tuesday, a surprised Frank Kratovil waded through a sea of constituents. The first-term Democratic congressman had been told by aides that maybe two or three dozen residents would attend the “Congress in Your Corner” town-hall event in this Eastern Shore town of about 360 people. Instead, more than 250 people showed up...
..... Mr. Kratovil is an attractive, polished, likable guy, but his seeming support for President Barack Obama’s health-care proposals and his vote for cap-and-trade legislation put him out of step with many constituents. “You don’t get it,” one told him after he argued that increasing government’s role in health care would be a good thing if only Congress crafts the legislation language properly. “We don’t want it. We don’t want your help.”
The audience erupted in huge applause when a retired naval chief petty officer brought up government-run health care on Indian reservations and at Veterans Administration hospitals and then asked, “Why would we want that?” The audience booed when Mr. Kratovil said he voted for cap-and-trade because he thought it would actually lower Marylanders’ electricity rates.

Honestly, I don't know where you are from and I don't mean to be a jerk, but I don't tell you how to handle YOUR Government's corruption. Please show the same courtesy.
I mean, lets assume you are from England, I have never told an Englishman to go out and kill Gordon Brown (this is just an example and I don't mean to go point by point on this)... it isn't my place.

Take a look at Canada, Netherlands and England, their health cover is a heck of a lot better than yours.
