I don't know about all of you but I'm pretty fed up with the way the medical system works in general. That includes insurance companies, hospitals, pharmaceuticals, and even how expensive it is to just go see a doctor. Peoples' coverage is dropped left and right because their illnesses cost too much. Many uninsured don't receive the care they need. One person in this discussion said that it cost them $4,000 a year to insure their child who might see a doctor once for a checkup during that time. That's ridiculous. People are going bankrupt, having their credit ruined and losing their homes because of their medical bills. No one in "The Greatest Nation in the World" should have to choose between receiving the medical care they need and paying their rent. It's capitalism run wild and it needs to be put in check.
Now get me straight - I don't wanna see the doctors and pharmacists go out of business and I think they should be paid well, but I don't think there need to be huge corporations profiting at every turn when it comes to our medical system. All it's doing is jacking up the prices and sucking us dry. I think we could have better care that costs less if we would just set up a single payer system and pay it all through taxes so it's "free" at the point of delivery. What do you think?
