Something to Keep in Mind

I just heard on the local news in Syracuse, NY that Lifetime Health Center in Central Square, NY is going to close April 1. Central Square is a small town about a half hour north of Syracuse. I'm sure it's been nice for the residents of Central Square to have a health center in their town, especially with our winters. The news report said that Lifetime Health said that they are losing too much money to stay open. They serve mainly Medicare and Medicaid patients.

This is just one little example of what will happen if we move to a single payer, government run health care system. Medical providers won't be able to make any money and they will go out of business. There has to be a better answer.
