I welcome socialized medicine. The government may simply put a cap on wrongful death/negligence lawsuits and the costs would come down dramatically, and the tax increases would be nothing compared to the average family's annual medical expenses as they are now.

I don't see it happening in 5 years though, not even 15 or 20...or perhaps ever. There is SO. MUCH. MONEY. in the insurance companies and drug companies that the lobbyists will completely block any such talk.

There would have to be some very drastic occurence that would shift the status quo.
