"Some crazy how" is an expression... Welcome to the 21st century. We're called humans. Where are you from? ... I said "then you'll love public healthcare"... you criticize my grammar then out yourself as illiterate? Well played.
As to insurance companies... wrong. If that were so then car insurance and home insurance etc would be sky high expensive.
why is uniquely health insurance so expensive?
And note, the profit margin of health insurance companies is not that great.
Of all the organizations that are responsible for the high cost of medical case, health insurance companies are the least to blame.
If anything they're keeping costs down.
What keeps costs down in a capitalist system is competitive pricing.
When was the last time you saw the prices of hospitals compared between each other? When was the last time you saw them even list prices?
The two big culprits are actually the hospitals and the regulations under which the hospitals operate.
This is why private practices are often cheaper and it is much cheaper to see a general practitioner in his own office not located on the hospital grounds than it is to see even an urgent care doctor inside the hospital.
You blame the health insurance companies for the high prices. Explain to me please how they conspire to inflate costs when somehow their profits are so low? Where is the money going if THEY are keeping it?
As to where you said the current system is free market... or the previous system was free market... you literally said it immediately before challenging me to quote you:
"Bought by insurance companies, that bastion of capitalism."
How are you so fucking stupid that you can contradict yourself just one sentence apart? You're fucking astounding.
As to you still using your brain... as the previous example shows... No you're not.
