"American health care is a bizarre blend of the worst of capitalism and the worst of socialism," said Dr. Eugene Uphoff. "If money equated with health in America we would have the best system in the world."
Seward said that Americans must understand what single-payer is, and what it isn't.
"[Monies] directed to health insurance companies would be redirected into one, public fund that insures all Americans. It's not Socialism, it's smartism.
According to the Mad As Hell Doctors, if the insurance industry - the bureaucrats - are taken out of the health care equation, a single payer plan would pay for itself.
Dr. Paul Hochfeld, an emergency room physician in Corvalis, OR, who leads the doctor coalition, said "If we got rid of the 20 percent that's wasted by the insurance industry we'd have enough to cover everybody."
