If you want control over your own health care, over your own life, you have to pay your own way. The more you do that, the more you're in control. To the extent that someone else is paying your bills, they will be in control.I already gave you my answer. Please enlighten me as to what exactly you have in mind short of being your own doctor, hospital, and pharmacy and being independently wealthyAgain, I have to ask, are those the only two option you can think of? Why do you insist that someone else be calling the shots for you?Sure , but what exactly does that look like when you have a for profit health care industry that won't allow you to be in charge? Either that have free reign to make the life and death decisions based on their bottom line considerations, or they are regulated by government. With regulation, I am by far, more in control than I would otherwise be.Those are the only two options you can think of? Seriously?
Why would you want anyone to be in charge of your health care? Wouldn't you rather make your own decisions?
You seem to be coming at this from the conviction that no one can pay for their own health care, and I'd ask you to really pause and consider that premise. Imagine if this were the situation with food. Let's say we regulated food to the point that the average person could no longer afford to feed themselves. In that case, should we spend our time debating whether government, or corporations, should feed people? Or should you question how we got to a place where something as fundamental as food is too expensive for the average consumer?
