I don't know which way you're arguing on socialized medicine.

For sure it's simpler and can be less expensive. The only thing you lose is liberty. In my view, probably worth it considering our current situation (and I lean slightly libertarian). Our current system has the worst aspects of both capitalism and socialism. At least in socialized medicine you'll still have the option to pay out of pocket for private medicine. The only thing I don't like is that when the public is responsible for your healthcare, they are also responsible for your personal life decisions. Maybe the socialists make donuts illegal even though I don't abuse them.
