I have been investigating the issue for many years including talking to people in many countries about their health care systems. I am well aware of the costs, limitations, restrictions even forms of rationing involved. I also know that it’s hard to find people in European countries who do not like their systems.
I also know Americans do not understand health care issues, they have high expectations that are not affordable, they overuse health care and they do not see paying for health care expenses as a personal responsibility which should be part of the family budget.
We have a dysfunctional, uncoordinated system for delivering health care.
Despite all the limitations and faults, a single-payer, universal system in the US is inevitable…because we cannot agree on a viable alternative covering all Americans.
What’s your opinion?
