HEALTH: Universal Healthcare

Watching Sicko, I have to ask the question of people:
What's wrong with universal healthcare?
I mean, as the movie points out, if we have the money to kill people, certainly we have the money to cure people. 

Am I wrong?

Also arises out of some of my fellow students saying "if Obama wins, our nursing salaries will go down," which I can't seem to find evidence of.

I'm with you. I don't see how it could be worse than privatized health care, which we all know works so perfectly that no one gets declined for care, or waitlisted, or anything...

On Obama's healthcare plans:
Perhaps there would be more staff and less overtime ?
On universal healthcare:
I try to look at things from a libertarian POV but the health care system seems to make insurance companies rich at the detriment to everybody else.
The Brits and Canadians I have spoken with have no problems with their systems and as I get older and feebler universal health care just seems logical.
