Are you saying this problem is unique to the US? I guess it is to some extent because we dont have universal healthcare. What is your solution? I mean this is the reason Obamacare instituted that tax/ penalty for those without insurance
There are plenty of people going into medicine, because despite high malpractice insurance doctors are still some of the highest paid people around (and are higher paid than their international colleagues I might add). Thing is more and more are getting specialties instead of going into general practice. Because you make more money doing that. I wouldnt mind limiting damages in medical cases though
I never said that the rest of the world had better health care. I'm just saying they pay a hell of a lot less for it. And I'm not familiar with any world leaders from first world nations who came here for procedures, though I dont doubt it.
If you wish to truly live free then you MUST assume responsibility for your action/inaction. If you wish to relinquish that freedom, then be forthright about it.
There is NO actual forcing of responsibility with Obamacare. If you can't afford Obamacare, then it is provided for you... EXACTLY THE SAME AS IT IS NOW, except, now the American public that actually pays taxes is now outright paying it as a tax for those that continue to live irresponsibly. The current iteration retains the burden with the taxpayer while adding an unchecked governmental buyer in the market while tacking on the administrative overhead of said "services" while being accountable to no competition in the market.
And NO, the answer to repealing Obamacare is not letting people die in the streets. It didn't happen before these ludicrous policies. It wouldn't happen after. It simply puts the burden back on local community to provide those services for the indigent where people can actually be held accountable for irresponsibility if the behavior is deemed as such.
This notion of fairness is "Harrison Bergeron" come to life and is every bit as unrealistic and unworkable. The current generation continues to live in a fantasy world at the expense of future generations if we can get away with it.
