Universal or single payer health care is a government run system like the VA that administers the entire health care system from doctors to hospitals. Given that all Americans working will be taxed to fund this system, is it a good idea?
Given that all Americans benefit from it - both directly and from a healthier population - yes.
No because the VA sucks
Not really a good analogy. The VA is moving to Obamacare policies.
You want it to run with the office efficiency of the DMV?
Call you doctor and be on hold for hours like when calling Social Security or the IRS?
You want geniuses like those who built healthcare.gov to run excel to see if you're worth the cost?
Quit taxing me. I pay enough. No wonder people want to raise the minimum wage. College kids can't even make a buck to pay rent.
There's plenty of evidence to prove that a government run healthcare system doesn't work. Just look at how bad the VA is functioning. Veterans are dying while waiting in line for their care.
The government is corrupt and incompetent
