With a single payer system, we will be more competitive in the global marketplace with Canada, Australia, and Taiwan who also have single payer systems. With the addition of German, Belgium, and the Netherlands who have Universal healthcare with multiple payers, but have some single payer features, and Japan, England, and France, who have other Universal healthcare systems that are of substantially lower cost to employers than the United States, we would be more competitive in the marketplace with most of our largest trade partners.
Single payer is the only system that I have seen that will lower costs, seems to be the only system that will help grow our economy, and provide healthcare based on need and not by ability to pay, which as it turns out is not only a financial burden to the US, but also a social burden as well. My father once told me that a healthy employee is a happy and more productive employee. Let's make America more productive.
Please join my facebook page about single payer (the not-for-profit option). I'm no doctor, and maybe a bit too passionate in my comments, but there are good links to read the things I have that made me so passionate about the single payer system.
