First of all, the government prints money, doesn't make it. And it prints it based on the wealth of our country. In order to pay for what the government buys, it needs to take it from us in the form of taxes. The government doesn't produce wealth which is a topic for another discussion and I would encourage you to create a challenge to discuss that.
Now, back to my original challenge, that Americans will never accept the huge tax increases needed to implement a single-payer healthcare system, you have not provided any good argument that contradicts it.
Is there any resource out there that actually shows that implementing a single-payer health system will not cause any burden to Americans? And it cannot be that the government pays for it's own expenses because that it's simply not true.
Further more, you have not presented any data that contradicts any of the data in the article.

I found a clear explanation why Americans never will accept single-payer health care system: www.nationalreview.com/article/449745/si...ont-happen-thank-fdr . The author acknowledges that there is some support for this concept, but concludes that Americans will never accept the huge tax increases needed to implement it. Also, Americans will not accept unavoidable restriction in access to the quality of health care. I agree with this reasoning presented by the author Mr. Max Bloom, and I challenge supporters of single-payer concept to counter the arguments presented in the linked article.

"NEVER" is a pretty big word. I'd argue that Americans will eventually support universal Medicare... But the current quasi-system will have to get much worse. It will probably correlate with medical bankruptcies.

I agree that "NEVER" is a big word. And to follow your logic, they will eventually support universal healthcare the same way anyone would accept losing one leg if the only other option is to lose both legs.
