Here's a good read on the health care systems from around the world. I'm personally in favor of a universal single-payer system, but there are lots of good ways to do health care; and almost the rest of the industrialized world has adopted a way which is superior to how we do it.
And that has to be the bottom line in the health care debate: we're way behind the rest of the world in both cost and quality. (Of course, I'd also like to see government payment for abortion removed from, and conscience clauses put into the Obama plan.)
