Why the U.S. Still Trails Many Wealthy Nations in Access to Care – The New York TimesBy
Despite progress with Obamacare, things are likely to get worse before they get better.
A very damning study shows that our medical delivery system ranks extremely low among developed countries on many, many points. Could our politicians’ incompetence in addressing the subject be the result of the fact someone else (we the taxpayers) pays their medical insurance bills? The Republican “solution” is simply to destroy our new system without proposing any alternative. If that means we go back to an unregulated and overly expense insurance system, or a totally free market in medical service delivery, then we will be reverting back to the ’50’s.
It is a matter of extreme frustration that our political and policy leaders appear to be both ignorant and dismissive of what other countries have done with this issue. If other countries have workable solutions, wouldn’t a competent leader study them?
