    In my opinion, the biggest impediment to reforming health care in the US is the lack of clarity on what the goal of such reform should be. What do you think the #1 goal of health care reform should be?

    Care to answer the poll? Or are you saying there should be no reform at all? That everything is hunky dory with the health care market?

    I tend to agree that's a good idea. But here I'm hoping to discuss the goal of health care reform before we talk about the strategy. What goal would be achieved, in your opinion, by getting the state out of it?

    I know it may sound like hyperbole but it srems it may be true considering a lot of dem policies do this: destroy the middle class. A 2 class system is easier to control.
    That wasnt a poll option lol

    How is it fucked up? What is the problem with health care? That's what I'm trying to find some clarity on with this thread. It's easy to say the system is fucked up. You'll find lots of people who agree with that statement. But what's fucked up about it?

    If we can't agree on the answer to that question, we're never going to agree on solutions.

    Besides "free" shit for everyone, every goal the hand wringers claim to want...Lower prices, better service, more competition, more outlets where care can be administered.....The best examples are Laskik and cosmetic surgery, neither of which are covered by insurance or any other program....The prices keep going down, while the availability and quality keeps going up.
