The problem with "competition" in medical care, is that in the cases where you need it the most, there is no competition. If you have a heart attack your not going to argue with the emt about what hospital they are taking you to. Most people are not going to argue with their doctor about their treatment for cancer. I really don't think medical care, especially hospital care, can be treated like any other industry in terms of free market competition.
It can be free market if MORE people demand it.
The talk before ACA was people who were not insured goes to the emergency room and those costs get spread out to other people. Keep in mind you have within this thread people saying they dont mind paying more.
So that's odd. Yet even after the new health law the emergency room scenario i mentioned isn't going away.
This is my beef and why I harp on this and blind loyalty.
Had this been a rep president who was pushing the same law it would be crushed by the media and those on the left would cry about the website and on and on.
I want smarter govt. I want prudent and practical govt.
The way hospitals go and costs there could be innovative ways to fix but we all seem to think they only answers can come from dc on this.
Finally this. Many here will see the slightest criticism of the govt and they get bent out of shape and call you anti govt and whine.
So I ask those who wears that shoe this.
When you invest do you invest 100% in govt bonds or do you spread it around? If you are that confident in the govt put all your eggs in one basket.
