The reason we pay so much for health care [blah blah blah, untested opinions and unproven hypotheses]. ...
- basically playing with people's lives is stupid.)
Here, have another vantage point to consider, fool: Say you're an individual who has a serious medical problem..... "Nice life you have there, would be terrible if something happened to it. Better pay whatever the fuck we say, or you die." Given that folks who CAN pay WILL pay whatever it takes to not die, which direction do you expect such "free market" forces to direct the price regardless of cost to provide? Even if folks DO CARE how much living costs... So, I think there should probably be SOME kind of collaborative interest on the individuals' side because alone they have likely have little leverage when it comes to health care and that whole "divide and conquer" thing.
Personally, I'm not an absolutist. I'm a scientist. I think we should try a few systems out, maybe a few hybrid ones, in various smaller test areas. Gather some evidence as to what seems to work, and roll forward making examinations and modifications as we go along. However, governments and politicians and their moronic divisionist supporters are all NOT scientists and IRRESPONSIBLY roll out huge changes to entire countries without any fucking evidence at all.
So, when it comes to this sort of thing: Any change is at least an opportunity to SEE WHAT WORKS. Unlike you morons I don't have preconceived notions about what's best. I wait for time to tell. Sadly you all want to take the slowest and most dangerous route to country-wide or world-wide possible harm or success in every fucking debate.
TL;DR: Fuck all of you morons.
