Actually Medicare and Medicaid are both government health insurance programmes that are funded by taxpayers. And as happens with most government programmes, they have been a complete disaster. No one wants to bring socialized health insurance(the UK has a form of it anyways, its called National Insurance)

True - it spends twice as much as a percentage of GDP on it as we do.
However, it's still private. Money still goes to private companies from private citizens for healthcare, and it's still a choice.
How on earth the USA manages to take all the ****ty bits of a private system and make it cost loads I will never know.
Also, I don't know why certain parties in the UK want to emulate that system.

Don't worry, the EU wouldn't allow it to be too harsh on us. If Cameron takes it away, he can kiss goodbye to a second term in office. Miliband better be getting ready for 2015, because LABOUR WILL RETURN!
Cameron will not 'take it away'. Miliband has to get through 2012, 2013 and 2014 before he can even think about 2015.
