  •  i think we'd be better off w/o the current system (0+ / 0-)

    the system we have has spawned an ineffective pharma industry and hospital industry... when it's all about bottom line it is simply against my best interests. just that simple.

    what is health care? we need to discuss whether it should be a for-profit thing... i say NO.

    but at least let's discuss it, break it down and look where the bleeding is (preventable care) and how lifestyle and the machinations of corporations hook people on things that they then must remediate later in life.

    why should tobacco not be responsible for the health issues of its users? why should it make all profit and no fines? i'm not talking taxes because those are on the user and still don't offset the health costs. like BP spilling in the ocean, why shouldn't all corporations be levied on net profit BEFORE bonuses and big salaries to offset their harm?

    let's talk about some shit... because health insurance is the least of it and maybe some of the worst of it.
