So if government is the only player in the game - wouldn't that also be a monopoly? Of course it would.

So - what you are really saying is that I have a choice between a government monopoly or a private monopoly? Hmm - seems like a no brainer to me then. I will take the private monopoly. The government already has a monopoly on healthcare for the VA. How's that working out? Let's take a look below:

In addition - the difference between trying to cancel my Comcast service and trying to cancel a government service, is that Comcast can't put me in jail or have me arrested or shot if I refuse and say no.

The government is tyranny and more of it should be avoided at all costs. Those like you who think it is benevolent are fools. Government is just people, only it typically tends to be people from the less desirable segments of the population at large.
So you think the us military is more accountable or private black water company?? You won't answer I know

Also you keep talking about VA. Va is govt run doctor and hospital that is different from govt run insurance. The doctors still work for hospitals or their own office but they get paid by govt. actually right now Medicare is one of the biggest payouts already so it's not much different.

You have crazy republican fear of govt healthcare and have a lot of theory on why it's bad but there is actually proof of how good it is in the U.K. There's also a lot of proof here on how good the NIH and CDC are run. I go with proof instead of your crazy republican theoretical fear haha
