There should also be private hospitals that charge their own rates and have a license to do whatever they want, which should be reserved for people with no time to wait for something like a heart transplant. Granted, I'm not sure if Obama's plan allows for this, but to me it seems like a no brainer; the best of both worlds.
except that this would mean that rich people have access to better and faster health care than poor people, which in my mind is not at all equitable.
