Health insurance: We Americans are confused. We all believe health care is a right. We think we shouldn’t have to pay to go to the doctor. But we blame insurance companies for every penny we are forced to go out of pocket.
I’m no fan of insurance companies, or of our system. But we all should probably pay a significant sum for our healthcare, whether that’s through taxes, insurance premiums (premia), or payments directly to healthcare providers.
I would prefer to pay taxes, and have the government bear the burden of healthcare for me. And for all of us.
Until then, radical inequality – and mass dissatisfaction – is inevitable.
I like sex. 😉
