Look it up people, it is coming and just ask a doctor, don't take my word for it.

Single payer, national health insurance...similar to Canada's is the only solution.

I am definitely sure if Dr. Kim is asked if this is what he meant, he will deny it (rightfully). He is talking about the next big thing; not what Obama lacked!

We'd like to see any policy on anything from the Republicans. Afghanistan? Iran? “Healthcare reform gave us access — but now that next step, it is so complicated and it is so big that it is going to require presidential leadership and I would love to see how they [the candidates] are going to provide that,” he said.
