Yes, were pretty behind in this area
No, that would be to socialist
The health of our citizens should not be left in the hands of corporations. Health care is a right, and nationalizing it ensures that citizens aren't treated as statistics.
It's a great start.
I believe a universal healthcare system is good and should be done but I do not believe obamacare is correct system. you need a mix of socialism and capitalism to make a good economy and a good country, not just pure socialism or pure capitalism. Norway is a perfect example.
The fact that some people have to skip perceptions to save money and medical bills prompt more than 60 percent of US bankruptcies shows why.
we need free market healthcare
"Health care is a right" Yep just keep drinking the crazy juice. Health care is a service from another person, and goods and services are not RIGHTS. You have a right to life, liberty, and property, but you do not have the right to force someone to provide a service on arbitrarily decided terms made by some bureaucrat. The government will ALWAYS be susceptible to corruption and politics, which is why it is so inefficient, so why would we entrust it with the health of every citizen? Furthermore, why should health care providers be forced to provide a service? Is our economy not based on the voluntary trade of goods? Our economic system is based on voluntary transactions, where two parties exchange because each wants what the other has more than what they have themselves, so they trade. If a party is forced to make a transaction they would not normally make, not only are they now practically enslaved because they are forced to involuntarily provide a service, they move from a win-win trade to a win-lose trade.
