RE: How Long will Americans keep telling themselves Socialism is bad?
The care you get in America is the best in the world. Our quasi-socialist system of paying for the care, however, is a complete disaster. Health insurance isn't insurance in any meaningful sense. It's simply a way of redistributing costs for everyday expenses. Our failed Medicare/Medicaid system pays doctors 80% of whatever they ask. It costs a billion dollars to get drugs through the FDA testing system and then pharma companies have a fairly short time period where they have a monopoly on the drug. Furthermore foreign countries negotiate prices with American companies, so America companies jack up prices on Americans to make up for the low profit margins. American citizens are subsiding drug prices for the rest of the world! Medical lawsuits are also completely out of control with juries handing out massive payouts which cause doctors' medical insurance to be ridiculous. The AMA also keeps the number of doctors artificially low. It's run by doctors and has a monopoly on medical licensing so they have a huge financial incentive to undersupply the country with doctors.
