Socialized medicine and most healthcare insurance programs are unsustainable because they simply cover too much.
There are loads of affordable health care coverage options in the states that would cover catastrophic health conditions such as your liver conditions that would be very affordable for insurance holders who freely choose to pool risk.
However most health plans cover... routine doctor visits and other recurring costs that simply send costs over the top.
The easiest way to describe the problem with how we finance health care via the present insurance models...
Imagine what car insurance would costs if it included all of your gas and oil changes.
That’s the problem in a nutshell.
First off we have nationalized health care. Walk into any emergency room in the country with any ailment, tell them you cannot afford to pay and you will get health care. Your treatment will be paid for by people who can afford to pay.
That health care is the best in the world.
Here is the rub, aside from the fact we are not socialists. Everyone will have to participate...except for the politically connected, like unions and companies that support left wing ideology. So it is no longer socialized medicine. It is medicine that is good for thee, but not for me.
