Even though most of us believe that no one should be denied life-saving medical care in their time of need, there are over 27 million uninsured Americans. Why is this? Because our medical care costs way too much. Nearly every other first-world nation provides healthcare to its citizens at half the cost or less.
It’s time to overhaul the broken system and eliminate this hidden tax on all of us. Why should we put profits in the pockets of large corporations when families are going bankrupt and losing their homes because of unpaid medical bills.
The only way lower costs and provide healthcare to all our citizens is a true single-payer system. The optimal solution is to provide preventative healthcare, live-saving treatments and dental care to all Americans at no cost, while allowing those who wish to purchase supplemental coverage from an employer or private insurance company to do so.
America is the richest country in the world. Let’s spend our wealth on making our citizens healthy, instead letting others profit from our misery.
