Do you think a universal healthcare system could work in the United States?

NO. It would mean the end of the American experiment

Too many people would object for it to be successful

Of course. It could work anywhere, but especially here where it would be such an improvement over what we already have, but at a much lower cost.

Lol! Lower cost? How on earth would we in our wildest dreams pay for that?? I guess maybe if we offer worse care and pick and choose whose lives are worth saving...🤔

We are already paying for that plus the overhead and profit extracted by the middleman insurers, who benefit no one but themselves and their shareholders. Remove the expense if the dead weight, and you’ve already saved money without changing anything else.

Because taxes would go way up, people have no access to better care of they can afford it, quailty would go down, incentives to advance medical technology would be non-existant

I disagree. Taxes would obviously go up but I think it would save Americans money in the long run

There's no reason we couldn't have really good health care, I think many people could get better care than they have now. I don't think there's any argument that lives would be saved

Remember Britain’s deciding that young boy wasn’t worth the trouble? And remember he wasn’t allowed to come to the USA to deal treatment without having to wait?

Why could we not learn from this and grow. Why not try and solve the problem instead of give up and say "that's what's gonna happen to us"

It has never worked anywhere, why would we be any different.
