I am wondering how this will pan out? There are so many private interests related to heathcare provision in the States. Obamacare was a step in that
direction and it has become very unpopular.
In the UK we have a broken national healthcare provision. It worked so well once, but when privatization came in 1979 the service was slowly broken
apart. As it stands we are are on war time healthcare rations now. That is the nearest it can be explained as. We have a hybrid public/private service
contracted out to certain companies. It is giving us the worst of both worlds for sure.
There are real reasons why America's system is not working and neither Britain's. In America there is too much private business interest. People have
made billions out of the citizens. They have fed them opioids, all manner of psychiatric medication, cosmetic surgery, you name it (if it sells it's
in). It is like diagnosis for profit. It has become pretty insane and very damaging to the nation's health. I feel bad for you all because they feed
you pills like M&Ms.
In the UK we have let contractors gain access to make profit for the investors and shareholders (down the same dark alley as the U.S). There is like
an oldboy's network where lucrative contracts are given by government in what can only be described as some kind of cronyism-favouritism - cliques and
Once the shareholders are in it to take their chunk ultra streamlining and ultra profit maximization come instantly into effect. Prices will keep
rising because the boards will year upon year find excuses for maintaining a profit interest in all the companies who are awarded contracts. To
maintain market attraction, to keep looking all sexy, companies must show they can turn a quick profit for venture capitalists, who operate globally
where the latest bargains are.
In any scenario how do we tackle this? Only legislation can rid us of this curse. Legislate so companies, investors and shareholders can't milk us for
everything we've got. If we want to keep a kind of inclusive capitalism only legislation can protect us from the shark infested waters of
privatization without eventual utter alienation of the masses and Maoist proportion backlashes. Hoodwinking the masses will not work for much longer.
Everybody is finding out what is really happening. This enlightenment can't be stopped.
We have as yet not found away to legislate away human greed. It is this on a very fundamental level that is causing our societies so many problems. We
need to be protected from the globalist sharks who do nothing for nations except exploit them for dividends and bonuses and then tax dodge at every
opportunity. That is filthy low inhumane behaviour, boys.
...And my my my, does our health suffer for that!
If America went all Fed about health care I think it would be too USSR style. It would be better to have Federal legislation, but allow for state
diversity (but kept within national and Federal expectations of standards). Healthcare provision would be more easily handled chunks that way.
