also, forgot to add that I do not believe in public healthcare here, if not only because I do not have faith in my government (Democratic or Republican led) to run it efficiently. I also see private health care booming if public healthcare becomes the norm. My thoughts being, public healthcare will be shitilly run and the people that can afford it will pay extra for the private care (along with the increased taxes to run the public program).
I believe in need-based government subsidized healthcare, because it would be better than no health care for those who cant afford it.
I also admit that our current state of healthcare isn't the best, but I do not believe making it public is the solution - I don't know what is the solution, but I don;t think that is it. :/
