 “There has been a lot of moralizing in this debate about medical financing.  Although there is a moral dimension to my position, the main reason I am opposed to single payer financing is clinically pragmatic: it doesn't work, and it harms patients.  My moral reasons for practicing the way I do are a matter of my ideas about my personal responsibilities to my family and my patients.  My opposition to single payer medical financing is designed precisely so that I won't impose my personal moral values on people who disagree with me, and I hope to get the same consideration in return from my neighbors in Vermont: please let me practice as I see fit, let my patients judge the value of my work, and let me keep the money I have earned so I can meet my responsibilities to my family and fulfill my personal aspirations.”
