4. Make an all-out attempt to limit deaths by hospital infection and the simple failure of doctors to wash their hands and perform other medically obvious procedures.
5. Make an all-out attempt, working with state and local governments (recall, since the Feds are picking up the Medicaid tab they have temporary leverage here), to ease the spread of low-cost, walk-in health care clinics, run on a WalMart sort of basis. Stepping into the realm of the less feasible, weaken medical licensing and greatly expand the roles of nurses, paramedics, and pharmacists.
I find it incredibly sad the number of people that would agree with you. You've basically said, in as many words, that it doesn't matter to you what kind of violence is required to maintain it, you want other people to pay for your health care and will vote for whatever individual, no matter how power crazed or incompetent that individual is, in order to get it.
