Health Care - Why are the Myths Driving the Debate?

One of the more striking characteristics of the current health care "debate" is that it is much more driven by myth and imagination than actual facts.  Death panels, socialized medicine, anecdotal stories of people dying in foreign countries because of denied health care (as opposed to actual stories of people in the US dying from denied health care, which somehow don't count) - the list of supposed objections is endless. Yet, most people in these "socialist" countries are very happy with their health care, and wouldn't consider trading it for the bureacratic tangle we all have to deal with to go see a doctor.

The Washington Post recently , and what the truth is. Go read it. Then wonder why anyone would defend the current US health care system as the best in the world.
