@moonglade, Do you even think about what you are saying?
Universal Healthcare is not some blanket system that will magically just fix everything.
Why does it work in other countries? Because they have implemented it well!!!!
The way the administration puts it, if you don’t support THEIR universal healthcare, then you are an elitist, a bigot, the 1% blah blah blah.
Well guess what? I don’t support it because it doesn’t do anything to fix the inherent problems within the US healthcare system.
The REAL problem is that the Affordable Care Act doesn’t address any of the issues that make our healthcare system terrible – rampant fraud among insurance companies, hospitals, pharmaceutical companies, and doctors. They all keep medical costs high because they give each other kickbacks to keep it that way. Why do you think the US has the highest healthcare costs in the world and some of the worst health in the world?
It is because the system is broken. And instead of fixing it – we just spread the payments around to more people. That sounds like a FANTASTIC solution to me….
And as I said earlier, this Affordable Care Act does not incentivize anyone to be healthier so I find it very hard to believe that it will improve health in this nation. No, it will just drag down healthy consumers with another tax while not even coming close to targeting the real problems with our healthcare system
Please tell me how I am wrong. Because you can’t.
