American health care system is broken
Placeholder Image
I am not the only one who thinks our health care insurance system is broken.The problem we run into in the United States is the idea everything has to be for-profit. That somehow if healthcare were socialized we would sink into a frightful state of affairs if the system were revamped to provide healthcare for the sake of human compassion and “it’s the right thing to do.”When we bailed out the bigwigs on Wall Street who were peddling subprime mortgages under the ”too big to fail” rationalization then I say all bets are off when it comes to healthcare going totally non-profit.Let’s face it, our system now is broken and some people believe it is unwise to provide healthcare to everyone. I don’t know how they sleep at night.As for creating an environment that was less free when it comes to commerce in regards to healthcare, I thought Forbes was on the right track with this May 2015 article which said: Many American conservatives oppose universal health insurance because they see it as fundamentally antithetical to a free society.
