Is it our goal to make everyone buy health insurance or is it our goal to make sure everyone gets the health care they need?
Fixating on making sure everyone buys health insurance is actually depriving people of health care.
Having health insurance is no guarantee one will get the health care they need.
Several obstacles are involved with the delivery of health care through health insurance companies:
1. High premiums.
2. High co-pays.
3. High deductibles.
Why has the government allowed doctors to refuse to accept Medicare and Medicaid? Allowing this is sabotaging these programs.
How come the government can force everyone to have health insurance but can't force doctors to accept Medicaid and Medicare?
How can the government force everyone to buy health insurance but can't dictate to pharmaceutical companies the price they charge for medications?
The private for-profit health care system has failed the American people... the time is now for a National Public Health Care System... there is no other alternative that works to provide everyone with health care.
