I was thinking about it this morning. If the government is in the process of socializing medicine and making it available to everybody, wouldn't that eliminate the need for insurance companies? I mean, why would there even be any? They don't provide any medical service. If anything they would only slow things down. And I'd also assume they'd artificially drive the cost of healthcare up, as they would essentially be making profits without offering any real value. And they do make quite a bit of profit. Wouldn't this also make the cost of healthcare much cheaper? I understand this idea is a bit radical, especially for a conservative like myself. But as a fiscal conservative I'm also against waste and inefficiency. Hence, medical insurance companies came to mind. What are your thoughts?
