Also what incentive does a for profit healthcare industry have to cure anything? Why would they want to cure cancer or Aids when they can make a
fortune giving a person drugs the last decade of there life? How long has it been since the medical industry cured anything?
This is what many people do not understand when it comes to healthcare. Healthcare works because it is a profit based model more people are paying in
to that system than using it hence the profit part.
Now since the average person can go 10,20,30 years without ever needing that insurance they are paying for those who do, and from that profit they
develop new drugs, better equipment, and practices that benefit the end user.
Without that profit there would be no antibitotics,nuclear medicines that in some cases cure "cancers" and produce the technology that have saved
millions from cancers, and that most loved birth control pill.
All due from profit now take the government version of medicare and medicaid what the hell have they done except live off of private medicine
