Re: Issues 2020: Medicare for All/Public Option

I cringe when this comes up. The British system appeared because the UK was decimated by WWII. Medical personnel work for the Government.

Let's say the young man was assigned to the exit row. Still the airline's fault. Can't randomly assign passengers to that row because of the duties (see above) that they have to accept voluntarily and be capable of providing.
