    Response to GSandeen: Future of Healthcare in America

     

    GSanDeen has managed to misunderstand the debate on the best course of healthcare reform going forward. Everyone understands that a healthcare system void of profits is a healthcare system that would not be innovative. In that light the argument should first be to determine which parts of our healthcare industry is innovative and which part does not require innovation and is nothing but a commodity. Non-ideological thinking would immediately discern that insurance companies’ services are simply the equivalent of paying a bill for a profit. No matter how one may try to conflate this fact that is all they do; attempt to maximize their profits to shareholders and executives. The only way to accomplish this is to deny services to their clients, rescind insurance policies where possible, and form incestuous relationships with specific doctors, hospitals, and drug companies thus eliminating the insured the choice to their respective doctors or procedures.

     

     

    Healthcare reform is a must. We must have a non-profit entity, the public option at minimum to keep private enterprise in check. No one wants a government takeover of healthcare but private health insurance have failed because the current model is not sustainable.
