  •  The myth that the market will correct itself (6+ / 0-)

    has led to immense needless cruelty, suffering, and loss. All the market wants is to show constant growth in profits.  They don't share those profits with the shareholders and they don't care if increasing profits hurts their customers.

    We must evolve, either quickly or instantly to pubic ownership of healthcare. Private, for profit healthcare is just nasty. Competition is a thing of the past.  Anti-trust laws are gutted. The healthcare industry spends more looking for loopholes so they can deny you care, or just deny you care anyhow without even finding a loophole in hopes you'll give up and not pursue the payment you contracted to receive.

    The problems and greed in our healthcare system hold the entire economy down.

    Meanwhile, I keep putting off getting that blood test to check my thyroid medicine dose due to not having insurance or money to pay out of pocket.  I haven't had follow up exams for four years since cancer surgery. Medicaid will put a lien on my house before they will help me and then I risk losing my shelter for medical tests. I want change and I want it now.
