Growing up, and having lived a part of my adult life in the US, I’ve seen the fundamental unfairness that exists in the US healthcare system. I’ve known people that have died, due to a lack of coverage, and I’ve seen people go bankrupt over it, too. However, what has proved the most appalling is the attitude that people have about the problem. The profiteering is blatant, and who cares if people die? It seems to be more important for the politicians to gaslight about death panels, and virtue signal about personal responsibility, while they’re in the pockets of insurance companies that make the life and death decisions regarding who gets care. And God help you if you don’t have coverage.
Nowadays, I’m just glad that I live in Canada, and not have to worry about this problem. But I do worry about my mother, as she has lots of medical bills that she simply can’t pay.
