Often when people discuss American healthcare, we get lost in details of costs and difference kinds of insurance. sha384 over on Zerohedge summarised the situation rather better. Americans suffer, both coming and going.
Don’t pretend you’re smarter, we’re all trapped in a kleptocratic system ruled by psychopaths. It will get worse before it will get better, we’re not yet at the point where we have nothing left to lose.
It’s close though.
It astonished me that Americans still don’t want universal health care, when their privatised health care system is between two and five times less efficient than either Canadian or European health care systems.
Work your whole life to pay for your house and mortgage to leave it to your children. Lose the work of a lifetime in the last – miserable – six months of life. No wonder medical doctors are not allowed to assist the elderly in dignified death.
There’s really no path out of this ideological nightmare. The medical industry gets wealthier, the middle-class are hollowed out.
