This is another topic where conservatives have been made to look like the bad guy.
OF COURSE WE WANT EVERYONE TO HAVE ACCESS TO HEALTH CARE.
The issue of uninsured individuals does need to be addressed, however, the answer is not by allowing the government to completely control our healthcare system and our access to it. The base of all of our issues with health care sits within this question: who will pay for it?
Our healthcare system has been broken for a long time and conservatives and liberals can both agree that there does need to be reform.
The system of universal health coverage does nothing to make our healthcare system better.
As seen in other countries that have had universal healthcare for some time; there are widespread issues of being inefficient, slow and expensive. However, if healthcare was operated like a business in a free market-based system then consumers could shop for their treatment. In creating competition between alternative and conventional medicine providers it allows patients to be at the core of their care. Doctors would be giving valuable care and not just voluminous care. When the system is setup to allow them to get paid by the volume of treatment they give they will opt to create more red tape instead of making the best decision for the person.
It’s the same thing as treating only the symptoms but not the actual disease.
Making it about the patient and not about the pharmaceutical companies or over inflated insurance policies will help our citizens in the end.
The Affordable Care Act is not working. As seen in the chart there is bipartisan agreement that there needs to be less spending done on healthcare. As people are feeling the effects of what the ACA actually means to their pocketbooks and health they are pulling away from the ideology that the government needs to control our healthcare.
