let us look at health insurance realistically. It is a bunch of people paying into a system and they get their medical care taken care of by it. When people talk about buying something you have to pay for it out of pocket. So just having health insurance is an attempt to socialize medicine. This would not be bad if it wasn't for the fact it is a terrible way to socialize medicine. First your taxes, aka insurance premium, are pilefered by stock holders and corporate executives because that is how a business works. They then tell you who you can go see, and have their accountants evaluate your medical care, which is a death panel by the description given. You argue and fuight with them, but in the end you have another health insurance company just down the road whop will do the same exact thing to you. How is health insurance not socialized medicine? The only way I see it being that is that stockhoplders and CEOs get to decide what to do with your payments and not elected officials.
