Default Re: Quality Control (Conn Carroll & Noah Kristula-Green)

>What do you mean by "artificial layer of profit-taking"

When a public company whose duty is to maximize profits for its shareholders takes a cut of every health care transaction, amounting to billions of dollars, and games the system, in collusion with other for-profit corporations, to maximize the amount they rake off the top - which is enough to ruin the country.

The trouble with the one sided diavlog is that you've created a straw dog in this nonsense about doctors and medicare. You're deflecting attention away from the elephant in the room - the organized crime protection racket that Republicans have set up to bleed everyone dry.

The person who needs health care has to pay and the people who provide the actual care need to be paid. Because health care is usually not needed until it's needed in unaffordable amounts, there has to be a way to pay one affordable amount over the long haul and then be guaranteed care. The fair way to do this is through taxes and single payer. If an insurance model has to be used, IT HAS TO BE NON-PROFIT! As long as a corporation's profits are determined by how badly they screw over the Ämerican public this is going to keep happening. Why is that so hard for rich people to understand? You all sound like Marie Freaking Antoinette.
