This sickens me Beeze...and it will be pushed by Democrats who really do think the Government must control every aspect of our lives. Including the
Medical Care Providers who've spent their own money to obtain a license to practice in a dwindling free society.
What next...confiscate their passports so they can't leave a country that no longer holds the principals of a Free Society?
I used to fear for our future...that future is now...I have much fear.
Government controlled health care works in the majority of countries that it's implemented, but it's universal health care.
The problem with the US is that insurance and drug companies are in the pockets of the politicians. There is a reason Americans are constantly trying
to smuggle drugs (the legal [although illegal this method]) back from Mexico or Canada.
Why is it medication that costs $10 in Mexico, $25 in Canada, is $60 in USA?
Sweden and other countries have great health care, all universal. The problem with USA is that the country won't give up full control to a body that
actually wants to improve health care for everyone (while simultaneously ripping profits from long standing business interest.)
point, while simultaneously trying to blame Canada and Europe for the high cost of drugs in the US. Although, the author puts their foot in their
mouth by saying drug companies charge what the market can bear. That's the point. The US can bear to get ripped off, as it's the status quo.
They also forgot to mention how the drug companies are subsidized by institutional research which goes into drug development. Universities giving
their information to them while students do the labour…
