  •  Publicly-Funded Healthcare (0+ / 0-)

    We should just start focusing now on the battle for publicly-funded healthcare. That's the only feasible solution, anyway, so we might as well work on that.

    We need to remind companies that they are bearing the cost of this. Most large companies have a giant healthcare expense. That would go away with a publicly-funded healthcare system, which would be cheaper overall than what we have now. Getting rid of profits, excessive executive pay, and all the unnecessary expenses is the only way to get our costs in line with those in other countries. We can't keep on spending 50% more than Europe for our healthcare system indefinitely. Especially when it doesn't deliver the outcomes their systems do.

    We should be on the attack now, so that we can use the decision, either way, to our advantage.
