until Congress is a majority of (L)'s (ie: people actually working for the VOTERS), there will never be socialized anything in this country.
There are only two industries that should be socialized in the US. Healthcare and legal representation.
In socialized medical systems, the doctors work directly for the state. In Canada (and many other countries with universal care), doctors run their own private practices, just like they do in the US. The only difference is that there's one insurer: the provincial government.
"the United States spends about twice [per person - I've seen the figures] what Canada, France, and the United Kingdom do on health care (all three have socialized medicine) yet ranks lower than these countries on life expectancy and higher on infant mortality.
