As we move inexorably closer to a nationalized, single-payer health care system, it may be worth noting that another such system is fading, quickly:

"The German government abolished the three-year waiting period for an individual to move from state-regulated health insurance to private health insurance. This has lead to more Germans purchasing private cover."

But why would good German citizens turn up their noses at "free" health care? Pretty simple, really: they've "started investing in private health insurance products to gain access to better medical treatment, without having to pay expensive medical costs."

Remember when we had such a system?

Good times, good times.
