Do you think a universal healthcare system could work in the United States?
Yes, and it could also be affordable.
Fiscally no effing way
It has never worked anywhere, why would we be any different.
Because taxes would go way up, people have no access to better care of they can afford it, quailty would go down, incentives to advance medical technology would be non-existant
It could work, why not
It already does...it's called Medicare.
Of course. It could work anywhere, but especially here where it would be such an improvement over what we already have, but at a much lower cost.
NO. It would mean the end of the American experiment
There's no reason we couldn't have really good health care, I think many people could get better care than they have now. I don't think there's any argument that lives would be saved
We are already paying for that plus the overhead and profit extracted by the middleman insurers, who benefit no one but themselves and their shareholders. Remove the expense if the dead weight, and you’ve already saved money without changing anything else.
Why could we not learn from this and grow. Why not try and solve the problem instead of give up and say "that's what's gonna happen to us"
Too many people would object for it to be successful
Lol! Lower cost? How on earth would we in our wildest dreams pay for that?? I guess maybe if we offer worse care and pick and choose whose lives are worth saving...🤔
Remember Britain’s deciding that young boy wasn’t worth the trouble? And remember he wasn’t allowed to come to the USA to deal treatment without having to wait?
I disagree. Taxes would obviously go up but I think it would save Americans money in the long run
