Does anyone honestly think our government that can't even manage Social Security, Medicaid, or Medicare could somehow manage to pull off a working Socialized Healthcare System? No? Me either.

Update 1: From Mayo Clinic:
Mayo Clinic has been cited by President Obama on several occasions as well as in several media outlets . . . as an example of quality, cost effective health care that others around the United States can learn from . . . Medicare like plan will lead to financial ruin for patients, doctors and hospitals:
Mayo Clinic firmly believes that a government run public plan with price controls structured like Medicare would be financially disastrous to individual physicians, medical practice groups, and hospitals, which will ultimately hurt patients who seek care. The current system of Medicare payment punishes the most effective and efficient providers. Twenty-five years of experience with price controls has proven that price controls do not control spending. A majority of Medicare providers currently suffer great financial loss under the current program. Mayo Clinic alone lost $840 million last year under Medicare. Mayo Clinic and other providers are reaching the point where they cannot afford to see Medicare patients.
