Why, Indeed....

This article from the BBC reminds me of the puzzlement of my friends and family who have lived overseas and benefited from the public health care there - why would Americans not want this?
"Why are so many American voters enraged by attempts to change a horribly inefficient system that leaves them with premiums they often cannot afford?
Why are they manning the barricades to defend insurance companies that routinely deny claims and cancel policies? "
The answer? "Because this is 'Muraca and in the Land of the Free we protect the right of huge profit health insurance corporations to take our premiums and then deny coverage so we have to go bankrupt to save our little Jimmy from brain cancer cuz FREEDOM and not socialism and....USA,USA,USA!!!1!!!"
