You have to pay taxes don't you? The onlty difference is that these are taxes paid to private companies, but that's only because the public option got excluded.

Any politician in any country with a universal affordable health care system in place - that's virtuually everywhere apart from some Third World countries and the USA - would be committing political suicide if they proposed to abolish it. Once the USA joins the human race the same will be true there as well.
