You are entitled to your viewpoint...however
You are entitled to that viewpoint, however at this moment in history it appears that your view is not where the majority view is.

We pay 20-30 % of our health care dollar in needless administrative costs. Why not try something different as the present stuff ain't exactly working very well.
As for the claims that it doesn't work in other countries, these are mostly bogus. I know from personal experience or experience of relatives in both Canada and Australia. The French system reportedly has the best outcomes. And I have web friends in the UK who get the care they need as well.
Your world view of "private enterprise" can solve all problems is as clearly mistaken as the view that government can solve all problems.
But, there is a difference. You get a tiny voice in a government program and no voice in the private system.
