When It Comes to Healthcare, these Americans are Missing the Point
Ever since the disastrous Obamacare reforms eliminated competition in the healthcare market and created an insurance crisis, Americans on all sides of the political spectrum have been talking about how the Trump administration should address the issue, namely what to replace Obamacare with. There's just one problem:
As government gets more involved in the healthcare system and medicine becomes less privatized, costs skyrocket and quality plummets. The natural conclusion would be to get government out of the picture so that free-market competition can lower prices. Of course, that makes far too much sense for Democrats, whose only solution to government problems is to apply even more government. Even Republicans are now buying into the insanity. From the New York Times:
Concepts like personal responsibility and self-reliance are being thrown out in favor of bloated government programs that spend tax payer money inefficiently. Americans have forgotten the original cause of the issues we now face. Our country is now debating whether to put out the metaphorical fire with kerosene or gasoline.
If this trend holds, we could very well see our healthcare system collapse on a national scale.
Stay alert. Stay alive.
