Keep livin' that fantasy, man.
Insurance's main contribution to this problem is that it makes you not care whether you pay $100 or $1,000 for that CT. Single payer doesn't make you care either. It makes everyone not care. Except the gatekeeper. He gets to care for you. Which is kind of ironic, considering all the talk about not wanting government to come between (Half of) people and their doctors.
