People need to be educated in a general sense to evaluate this stuff rationally. If you take a bunch of uneducated redneck hicks and have an authority figure tell them how it should be they're going to be suspicious because they don't have the tools to evaluate the claims and for most of their life authority figures have FUCKED them.
And yet..., they will still vote for those same authority figures who simply tell them what they want to hear.

There it is.
We already have those. They're called insurance companies. Health care decisions, including the ethically complicated ones, are increasingly removed from the hands of the caregivers and the consumers. As a rule, that's bad medicine, but the bean-counters make the rules now, so fuck medically and ethically sound practices.
that's because the next big war will be between the rich and the poor, and live soldiers are less likely to fire on their family, friends and neighbors.
This should be good...
Enjoy your schaeudenfreude!)
Rolling in it, Bro.
Frankly, if they still don't get that abusing the hand that feeds them tax dollars isn't in America's best interest.
Your mistake is in assuming that the motivation for this behavior is "America's best interest". The interests actually being represented may be "American" but that is only a coincidence.
