LOL an aging population kind of speaks volumes about their health care doesn't it?

The older people get, the more expensive healthcare becomes... it is cruel, but the reality. Simple math and statistics which I know tends to fly above most of you progressive's heads.

A big problem with our health care system (anyone's really) is that people are living longer, but their health care expenses exponentially higher. In simple terms, we can't afford it.

It used to be people died in their late 50s/60s. Now with people regularly living into their 80s but with all kinds of ailements that would have probably killed them decades ago, the actuarial tables are out of whack. we have the same problem with social security and why it is going broke. Same with pension plans. People used to die long before they really used up all the retirement benefits relative to their contribution so the math worked, but not so much when someone is retired for 30 years.

What is the population of Japan ?
Now , what is the population of the US ?
How honorable are the Japanese vs the US ?
See , you have to ask yourself many questions before posting.

Countries where it works (like Japan) tend to have very homogenous populations. This is a big factor, because a huge swath of healthcare problems are genetic/familial in nature, so countries with little diversity can basically specialize their healthcare system for the problems that their population faces, and more-or-less ignore the problems that occur only rarely in their population.

As for the US, the veterans' system is a total unmitigated failure that needs to be burned to the ground (pretty much literally), and it serves less than 10% of the US population. This does not inspire confidence that something like Medicare For All could possibly be made to work.

In which countries does it work?


Works in Australia and in New Zealand.

Then there's this: Universal health care From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

I think Obama crafted Obamacare to fail on purpose because he was 100% certain Hillary or Biden was in next and she would have made it into single payer.

No. Not at all. I'd say their diet and exercise regime has more to do with it than any health care. Not to mention they take care of their own. So again...no.

Oh, so it works in a country with a fraction of the population of the US. A country that also has extremely strict immigration laws too?

Interesting


Why would you think that population numbers are an inhibition to universal health care? Surely that produces a greater constancy and funding pool to spread over the healthcare sector.

Similarly, immigration laws are irrelevant if everyone gets quality free healthcare.

Or is the US too poor (on average) to afford it?

Everything comes back to this don't it. The bottom line is, there are too many of us.

I have a couple ideas,
Change Social Security to a health care account and let each state run their own system.
Make health care non-profit. Pay would still be good, but prices could be chopped exponentially.
Kill off people over 75 who get ill.

no kidding

I just wonder why none of the "journalists" have asked here why she is not moving to implement this NOW?
If it is so great why wait for the next potus election?

Because it would be like managing a corner shop as opposed to Wal-Mart. The logistics would be enormous. That and city people would want to cut off country people, even though city people are far less healthy.

For a group of seemingly smart people you keep missing the main point. What would Government need to take over healthcare? Bureaucracy. What is bureaucracy? Public sector UNION employees. Go around Washington DC and any State Capital city and you will see building upon building full of government employees doing the paperwork that is required for Medicaid, Medicare or Welfare. Then go to any doctor's office, hospital or medical center. There are people there who's job it is to process the paperwork required by Medicaid, Medicare or Welfare. These people produce nothing of value. They provide no care, they don't assist patients, in other words they are what is called "overhead". This is the true reason why medical costs are so high. The majority of these people belong to unions, pay union dues. Union dues money goes to support Democrats like Kamalla. No wonder she's in favor of this.

Also, they don't have unfettered immigration, much less unfettered ILLEGAL immigration. Theirs is controlled and moderated.

BTW, free healthcare for all isn't free. Even Medicare "premiums" for people receiving Social Security average around $150.00 per month. So, a retired couple already pays about $300 per month out of their SS checks. Go online and research it.

What do you think that cost will be when you put 25,000,000 illegals and how many millions of homeless and deadbeats on "free" healthcare. It will eat up your SS and/or your paycheck.

Actually, Donald Trump used to be for single payer healthcare. Maybe we will go there if we ever get this immigration, gang, drug, and crime problem under control. BUILD THE WALL FIRST.
