Quote from GCTMT
No need to get personal. I'm not moving. This is my country. I've buried family here. I love this country. I'm staying.
I want smart government, and whether you want to admit many Americans want the government to take a larger role in social affairs (health care.. etc..). I understand some people are fearful of big government, ultimately we are all going to have to compromise.
I understand there is a role for private insurers in other countries, in many countries it's a small role and it's heavily regulated.
The results of health care reform aren't known, because nothing has been implemented yet. The health care industry certainly has a hand to play in parts of the blame, as well as big pharma and hospital corp.
You say that most nurses, "can't make a living" in some of these other countries, I'd like for you to offer evidence, if you don't mind.
Education is a right, that should answer your medical school question.
So grad school is a right? My PhD is a right.
Health care insurance is highly regulated in this country. Go to any insurance website. Put in several different states of residence and see that in some states you only have a choice of 2 insurers and other states you have many more. And that is your government regulating it.
Someone said last year "This is a great country. Now let's change it". And that makes sense how?
You love this country but you want the government to take over more and more of it?
