Observations From The Planet 11/17/18

In my marriage only one of us has health insurance. We are not going to sacrifice life just to afford healthcare. We would have to give up things like vacations just to help the industry continue to make billions off our health. Honestly, we’d just rather die than support such an immoral scam. You can suck up to the American way all you want, but facts are facts. The findings of recent Bloomberg research shows the U.S. health system ranked among the least efficient in the world. In the U.S. you pay the most for treatment, yet Americans are not getting their medical money’s worth. Our average lifespan is 79, which is surpassed by 25 other countries. We all know how well our mental healthcare is working out for us. I could go on, but in short, capitalism doesn’t work for healthcare, period. I’m all for medical trained personnel getting paid good money for their efforts and the responsibility they bear, but the rest of the for-profit-only business can go to hell (it already is, but you get where I am coming from).
