  •  The cost of American Medicine (tm) is too high!!!! (0+ / 0-)

    Public funding would help, but the cost has to be reduced. The USA spends over twice what the other Industrialized countries spend on health care. Matching them would cut the problem in half.

    One of the main reasons I retired overseas at the age of 50 was my lack of health insurance. I simply would have had to go bare in the USA and taken my chances with a pair of pre-schoolers. Instead, we moved to ASEAN where health care is really cheap & OK and dental care is cheap & good and we just pay for it as we use it like any other expense. This has worked for us for 7 years and I see no reason to return to the Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave for overpriced American Medicine (tm).

    I voted with my feet. Good Bye and Good Luck America!!
