Proposals for US National Health Insurance

JAMA. 2003;290(21):2797. doi:10.1001/jama.290.21.2798-b

To the Editor: The proposal of the Physicians' Working Group for Single-Payer National Health Insurance1 largely ignores the shortcomings of a totally government-controlled health care system. Although the United States may have the most expensive system in the world, we also have the best. To eliminate the private sector smacks of socialism.
