The true free market can NOT run Health care system, can it?1Dwane2012-09-18 08:33:03
Capitalism is a wonderful thing - but running health care ? Not so . There have been studies that say that health care should not be put in the same category as other products and the free market can not operate healthcare still expect this to work ? MedlinePlus There are too many things when you have to use and how much it will cost her illness . Even if the U.S. could get all your people to lose weight and be healthy there are still many devastating diseases and accidents that happen to people all the time . The costs are so high , insurance companies health care are forced to ration care either turn a profit or increase premiums , How do you follow this system in which we have some people who receive excellent care and others get nothing or very little?

Do Liberals hate the free market when they say health insurance companies shouldn't drop you if you get sick?0soto2012-10-26 17:15:03
The Free Market allows Health Insurance companies to drop expendable leeches that get "sick" and then cry for monetary coverage from their insurer. And now with this socialist & unconstitutional ObamaCare heresy, we are told that insurers can no longer drop patients. Isn't this proof that Liberals are Communists due to their outright hatred of the Free Market?

Why isn't health insurance a commodity item like other forms of insurance (ex. auto)?0Frank 12012-09-18 13:15:04
I could have essentially the same car insurance provider throughout my life . Why health insurance is so strongly linked to the company ? It would be much easier to have the same insurance for years or decades to not worry about pre- existing conditions to change employers and health plans . With increased competition , the rates would be lower . Employers could still offer employees some money to cover health insurance premiums as a benefit . I am not advocating socialized medicine , and I do not think the Govt is very efficient in the execution of any program .
