Both sides are missing the obvious answer in the debate which is HOW to implement national health care rather than whether to do so. In the 1970s oil was discovered in Norway's territorial waters. Instead of allowing corporate interests to run their oil industry, they nationalized it. Oil pays for their health care and education. As a result Norway enjoys one of the highest standards of living in the world. According to the Human Development Index for 2008 Norway ranked second, while the US ranked fifteenth.

I believe we should nationalize oil, coal and natural gas as well as essential utilities such as electricity and water. No longer would our money be going to greedy corproations and their investors, but to support health care and education. I know some of you will scream socialism but take a look at the following links and see how we rank against so-called "socialist" western nations in Human Development, Education, and Quality of Life.
