Neither do I. Libertarians want to privatize roads too. You act like it's obvious to have the government pay for roads.

That's kind of a false equivalence, because healthcare has a problem that other government services don't have to the same degree.
If you destroy or damage a road somehow and the government has to spend more tax dollars because of your actions, but you're probably getting a hefty fine, or some other punishment which discourages this action.
If you're a fatass and the government has to spend TONS more money on your healthcare than they do on a normal person, there's no fine so everyone else has to pay for your irresponsibility. This is literally my only problem with government healthcare, is that MANY people will be drastically increasing healthcare costs for everyone else because they refuse to take proper care of themselves. Introducing any kind of fine to fix this issue opens up a very large can of worms about freedoms. I personally think that if someone is willingly putting themselves at a higher risk for health problems they should be taxed proportionally.

What if I told you that you are already paying for these fatasses. Because you are. insurance rates cover those with obesity, and increase rates. Then those who don't have health insurance go to the hospital for an obesity related issue that could have been avoid or mitigated if there was a doctor that saw them at a yearly check up, so you pay for it via taxes. That money could have gone to something else.


Single payer isn't an instant solution, but it saves money and increases the quality of life over the long run.

But I'm not.
Insurance companies increase premiums for people that are at greater risk in order to cover those costs. Same thing car insurance companies do for people that are accident prone.

They do pay increased premiums, but the premiums they pay don't at all cover their usage. Health insurance are like gyms, they make the most off the people who never show up.

If there was a workable way to only pay for the roads I use, I would support that too, but there isn't. Given the choice of keeping the private system we have where I pay for only myself and a public system, I prefer the former.
#26 - yusatatsuaki (09/22/2016) [-]
There is. Tolls. But that is fucking stupid, we have to move beyond the looking out for just ourselves mentality and look towards improving the community we live in. The benefits from that can certainly help us and countless others in the long run. Americans pay more for healthcare and get less satisfactory results, than those that have "socialized medicine" you have to wonder why.

I have good insurance that costs me much less than the average amount each briton pays for NHS. Seeing as America is a much larger country, American single payer taxes would be even higher than Britain's.

Does your employer pay for any portion of your insurance?

Also, more people living in a country doesn't mean higher taxes. Means more people to pay those taxes, also there are other ways to pay for it than directly out of your paycheck.
