The single-payer system, it was said,
Has faults that go beyond the fact it’s Red:
If any faceless bureaucrat decreed
That surgery the doctor says you need
Is not advisable and won’t be done,
The options that you have are simply none.
Malpractice? Sorry. Courts do not review
A bureaucrat’s decision. You can’t sue.
How different is your local HMO?
For one, the CEO makes pots of dough.
