None, unless you work like the German lander insurers. They operate as a profit-seeking entity, and then bonus out all profits to senior management.

Quote:Please tell me what competition the government has to help contain its costs.

None, which is why government-run entities always overspend their budgets.

Quote:Please tell me what negotiating power a provider has with a single payer?

None, which is why lots of providers move or shut down whenever single-payer (or single-provider) is implemented.

Exactly

While our system is far from perfect, that doesn't mean throwing it out and replacing it with a worse system is the right thing to do.

All one has to do is look at the DOD's bloated acquisition programs as a portend of what single payer would look like for the nation.
