I am impressed with the manner in which this debate is headed. Fair, straightforward and honest responses. It gives me a better understanding of how complex this matter is.
Republicans and Democrats (more so Republicans) are responsible for the high cost of health care. It seems that this is all about corporate greed.
Why should the same medication which sells for $ 10 dollars in Canada cost $ 100 in the USA ? Prescription cost is also at play here. Prescription companies are gouging.
I terms of in care hospital costs, how much more does it cost in USA ?
If memory serves me right, Bill Clinton tried some reform but the Republicans blocked it.
Let us see what President Trump comes up with. Americans need to hold their Politicians responsible and see how quickly they would back down from their greed.
I hope that some folks who actually are part of the health care system in the USA chime in.
Our system in Canada is not perfect but despite the imperfections, it works and everyone has access to free health care. America needs to start with affordable health care but as far as I can see, the insurance companies are the greedy bunch here.
Talking about insurance, I sued my insurance company for a matter unrelated to heath care and they quickly settled after they saw the name of my lawyer just because he was not a small time lawyer. It sad that those with access to financial resources get better treatment.
I hope that President Trump works hard towards affordable health care for ALL Americans.
Will he take on the Republicans and the Insurance companies ? He has a good mandate from the people, it is up to him to bring change in the health care system.
