I think in due time, this is what we should be going for,but right now I don't think it is a good idea, we have too many other expenses to deal with. The issue is we need budget cuts,not more health care. The people would do better to think of this later, not now.
The United States of America definitely took a step forward when they implemented Obamacare. There is no doubt about that. But a socialized system, like the one in Canada, would be even better. The quality of care is very high and everyone has equal treatment by doctors and hospitals country-wide.
I believe the United States should have a health plan similar to Canada. When Canada addressed their need for universal health care they implemented cost control in the system to make sure health care providers were not overcharging for their services. This is a rampant problem in the US and something the Obamacare law overlooked.
The United States should privatize Medicare and Medicaid because those programs are becoming too much of a burden to American taxpayers. More than half of the U.S. budget is taken up by entitlement programs that will go broke in 30 years or less if something isn't done soon. The United States shouldn't try to emulate anyone's taxpayer-supported health care initiatives because modern health care is simply too expensive. The health care industry is in a catch-22--if Congress reduces the number of people on health care rolls, then doctors and hospitals stand to lose money because less people will seek medical care. Providers need more people to be insured in order to keep the gravy train moving forward or there will be tons of doctors and nurses without work.
