BTW, china is great example of state's economy growing, and at a huge rate, while its citizens are dying of hunger.
welfare of the state and corporations doesn't mean necessarily the welfare of citizens, although it's probably a prerequisite. it's about finding an equilibrium.
thing is, you could argue that public health care right now, in this particular case, isn't the best thing for USA.
but people like heilige seem to think it's innately and universally wrong, which is false. or that it's contrary to US constitution, which is again false. or that it has nothing but cons, which is again false. or that it would stop you from getting the better service if you have money to pay it, and so on...
