Let’s just hope

 

Can you imagine if we had a hospital like this?  It’s called government health care.  The thing that Obama admitted he would prefer to convert our country to.   I believe he calls it single payer.

    Yeah–Obama is going to criminalize private health care. Any person in the health care profession who is not working for the government will go to jail. Please…
    Why hasn’t capitalism fixed the problem of health care? Why can’t someone just do it better, faster, and cheaper? Why is the market waiting–almost begging–for government intervention? In this country alone you’ve got a guaranteed 300 million clients. Why can’t someone provide healthcare to the masses, for profit, better?

    You won’t have to criminalize it. Just take away the incentive for employers to offer it. The fact is we do it better and faster than anyone. The reason it is so expensive is because there is no incentive for the end user to discriminate what services they are using.

    Well, there will always be an incentive to offer it–if someone does it better. Right? That’s the market. Would you rather get crap for free or pay something and get better service? So that arguement is dead. Who is the “end user”; the patient or the doctor? A private firm’s, motivation is to keep costs down and profits up by denying tests, services, etc. Is it moral for a healthcare provider to have $10 billion in reserves? This is an area where business ethics is much more important.

    I know…you will say “Well if companies don’t pay for tests, they will get a bad rep, and will lose patients/clients.” That’s fine if you’re talking about paper products or face cream. But it’s a little different when you are talking about someon’s life–or quality of life.

    And I know a Federal program is probably not the best way to go. But I don’t hear you argiung to privatize Medicare/Medicaid–and you would have railed against it when it was created. But for many people, it has provided excellent services and helped prolong meaningful lives.

    It’s amazingly complicated. And the system is broken now. Stop “reacting” about Obama when he is at least trying to do something. Because it will break this country if something is not done. And don’t be disingenious about his policies before anything is in legislation.
