Obamacare: There is no way to half-socialize healthcare

Healthcare for everyone. Universal Healthcare. These are two phrases and terms that have been thrown around in the public for many years now.  This has also been President Obama's mission since getting into office.  With the roll out of our Universal Healthcare system this year people have been crossing their fingers and hoping that it will work out well for them.  Those who do not have health coverage are hoping that they will be able to get an affordable plan on the so called "open market place". That is if they can get the website to work for them.  Those that already have decent insurance are hoping that nothing changes with their plans. As was promised by Obama and his administration.  Those who have poor coverage hope that the coverage will get better.  The lower class hopes that their government subsidized health coverage improves and allows them access to better healthcare providers and facilities.  There are also those people out there that hope the plan fails miserably whether or not they have health insurance.  Then there are people like me who wonder, "How can you have half-socialized national healthcare?"
          I am not sure how we can some people in this country with their own private insurance and then some people with other plans.  Or wait maybe this isn't really like the socialized medicine we see present in countries like Canada, England, or France. By definition Socialized medicine is a term used to describe and discuss systems of universal health care—that is, medical and hospital care for all at a nominal cost by means of government regulation of health care and subsidies derived from taxation.[1]  
         So as many of the talking heads sit there on there cable TV shows and radio shows and bash and or support the program no one on either side has come up with any alternatives.  It is my belief that the people that bash Obamacare are the ones that are getting money from the side that is losing out as a result of the new health regulations.  Look to who is losing the money and you will find a money trail leading to lobbyists and PR firms that are out there putting funds behind the bashers.  Politics is all about money and if you do not see this you are truly living with blinders on.  I never heard so many people complain about something that is supposed to help people.  But then again I could understand some of the complaints.  Since nothing the government really does works out well.
