False premise. Feel free to ignore this subhuman’s propaganda in the future. It only exists within the context of the communist system we have today.

Right? Yes it will cost less but when you have to wait six months to see a doctor or specialist and the hospital/clinic is inside some crack whore warehouse, then maybe they’ll just…keep complaining and not realize they’re idiots.

It won't cost less. No country with socialized medicine only taxes ~4% for it. Its usually several times that, baked into the 60%+ income tax rates and hidden with mass borrowing. And you still have 6 month plus wait times, substandard equipment, so on. You'll also see refusals to do procedures they deem as too expensive on people they deem 'not worth the expense'.

It'd be true if the current system was capitalist. But we actually do have government mandating the levels of care companies must offer. They for long refused foreign competition in medication and treatment and the best of all allowed for monopolies to exist.

Along with the sheer bullshittery of the FDA.

If it were a capitalist system, healthcare would be cheap and plentiful. The regulation of healthcare is the reason there are so few providers.

As an example Mexico actually has a fairly capitalist system for their healthcare. Small (but modern) clinics of all kinds are plentiful and cheap.

Yup. It's also complete bullshit the government considers "insurance" healthcare and not being able to afford an actual emergency room visit without it..

Every single year, every industry manages to improve service for the same or lower cost, but for healthcare it seems to be the complete opposite. You seem to be getting worse service for more.

Keep sales tax around 10% and make income tax a flat 10% and be done with the entire tax going industry. I’d be fine paying 20% if I got to specifically choose where 10% of that went and there was complete transparency and accountability for that. I think most people would. Elect for 10% of your 20% income tax to exclusively go to fixing your damn roads and keeping the hobos out. There’d wouldn’t be a pothole left in America if we did that.

but how would they buy votes, then? The free GIBS, inflation, and rocket-train to communism has no brakes. We all ride this off the cliff together.

I can fire my insurance company.

Or I would be able to if the government would get out of the way.

CEO of what? An OnlyFans advertising service?

And who actually pays 20% of their paycheck to health insurance?

Base medical insurance is relatively cheap, but if you make $8 an hour it doesn't feel that way. If you aren't a teenager or a piece of shit working for that absolute minimum, it won't be 20%

Folks used to pay one third for food and 3% for health care. Now they pay 3% for food and 1/3 for health care. Makes sense, doesn't it?

Getting better medical care with 20% payment to insurance = enjoy your hour long emergency room wait 4% suckers
