Health Costs Healthcare Plan
“This government healthcare thing is an incredibly expensive and unsustainable proposal”
Right, only countries that have it pay less for it. Google how much healthcare is as a proportion of the overall GDP in the UK or New Zealand.
@ ynnek58 : Countries with government-dominated system tend to be fairly rare, but by and large make do for the majority of their population, not just the poorest ones. The problem are not the private actors, however; it is that they are profit-based bodies. Countries such as Germany, France, iirc Switzerland and others all have universal coverage executed by non-state agents. They have fairly good services (in general, they rank higher than the US in most surveys I’ve seen) and a lower price per person per year. The difference is that there, the funds that manage the health insurance of the people focus on doing just that, not on how much money they can make for themselves.
