    That IS a surprise. So far he’s acted like a Reagan Republican.

    I always knew it. The half of the country on the right knew it. Nothing like not having to campaign anymore to get you to be honest about what you really are.

    Aha, we won’t get fooled again!!! Okay, back to reality. O turned his campaign organization into a non-profit so they can maintain the publicity and fanfare to continue promoting his agenda. He is going to be campaigning in one form or another longer than any president in our history…

    What? He’s going to try to do what the American people elected him to do? How dare he!

    ^^^Otto von Bismarck, the “Iron Chancellor,” who unified a number of Germanic states into the powerful German empire, passed the Sickness Insurance Law in 1883, giving Germany the world’s first universal health care system. Having survived for 130 years including some massive upheavals, the Germans must like their health care system.
    And as Morty says, Bismark was not a liberal. He has been described as a crotchety, tax averse, right wing aristocrat. But he had this quaint notion that universal health care was necessary to unify the nation and to more effectively man the factories and military. Bismark was also responsible for some other social programs such as Workman’s Compensation and Old Age Security. Appears the Iron Chancellor was also a bit of a softy.
    Morty, correct me if I’m wrong, but although the Bismark model is universal I’m not so sure I’d call it single payer, as it is an employer based multi-insurance company model. It is rated high in world systems and provides wide coverage, but at 11% of GDP is at the higher end of cost. Although considerably less than the U.S. at 17% of GDP with many not covered.

    ^That nominal 6% difference is because people who make a living and profit off of disease and infirmity are eager to keep it that high. If Americans REALLY wanted to reduce the cost of health care they would stop promoting disease care and implement what WORKS. Clearly what we have now, i.e., allopathy, doesn’t really cure much of anything, and the side effects are awful to be kind about it. But it sure is a lucrative business for those deeply entrenched and engaged in it and lobbying to the max. There are a lot of dedicated people giving care (work the hardest, paid the least) but the system is continually being rerigged by those who just look to squeeze more blood money from the system.
    If people were given the knowledge and effective means to stay healthy, and the incentive to do so, the whole system could change. Instead we get bombarded with drug ads and faddish soundbite “health tips” that we find out later to be false and sometimes even unhealthy!
    Time for science-based comprehensive instruction in how to stay healthy right from the earliest days in school, and good entertaining public instruction programs available to inspire all. With a healthier population we will see creativity blossom and the cost of disease care will drop dramatically. Even though it won’t any longer be profitable to some (let them do something more useful).

    I wish this were true.
