As far as universal care......probably not. The gold standard in universal care is ......France. There system works, works
well, and is expensive.
Here in Ma, latest articles about health care are how one Ins co and a major health network basically price rigged health
care here. BCBS of MA made $900,000,000.00 in 2007. This is a non profit company I might add. My premiums went from 600/month in2001 to 1410./month in 2008 Health Ins here has more than doubled in 8 years.
Should Gov run health care? No, but they do have a role to play. Insurance provides O health care. Yet they slurp off
40-70 % of every health care dollar spent. That is unacceptable, and because of greed, no longer possible. The well is dry,
the Gov should REGULATE health care and payment systems, not run it.
I laugh when I hear that if gov runs it, taxes will go up. But because we get raped by an insurance company, its O.K.,
Something has to change and change soon.
