Shouldn't politicians be clear when discussing "healthcare" when they are really talking about "health insurance"?

Health insurance is a part of healthcare.

No. That's what health insurers want you to think.

It's certainly an integral part of healthcare in modern day America.

It has become that way but it still isnt inherently necessary

That doesn't change the fact that health insurance is part of healthcare in our private system. Good luck coming up with a million dollars to treat your cancer without health insurance, a government run system or being very wealthy.

Our system requires our medical facilities treat any sick person. The debate on "healthcare" began as a cost cutting measure. The states were burdened with the costs of those not insured. Before this began, I had insurance that would pay a portion of my child care if he broke his arm. Now I have insurance that won't pay a thing until we get to $12000. Which of these provided the best possibility of him receiving health care? Having insurance has nothing to do with the care he receives it only determines who pays for it.

Agreed, up intell the last notion.

With insurance you are always paying. Regardless if you or anyone under your plan is Ill. Hell jim down the street broke his arm, and he has the same insurance as you, you are paying a portion of Jimmy's bill.

What good is good healthcare if you can't afford it? If your healthcare is dependent on what care you can afford than it can be considered one and the same

Health care costs less when health insurance isnt involved.
