The current US healthcare system is a patchwork of clinics, hospitals and independent practitioners linked by a maze of insurance programs. Obamacare managed to patch the patchwork maze of healthcare choices and throw it to the American public to make their own choices.
The World Health Organization ranks the US Obamacare system at #37 out of 191 countries. Countries better than the US are Chile, Columbia, Spain, Malta, Belgium, Cyprus, Morocco, France, Spain, Japan and many others.
The US, at #37 is ahead of Cuba at #39 position.
So how does the US improve? Ditch Obamacare and move to a Single Payer Healthcare plan.
France, rated as #1, has a national health insurance scheme similar to our Medicare. And France does it for less money. Lower cost, better healthcare!
So how do we get there from here? Riot in the street? Curse President Trump? Republicans? Curse Congress? Probably none of the above. Education is key. The American public must be given choices – but the right choices – not an overhaul of a patchwork healthcare system.
This means prohibiting the insurance companies and their lobbyists from influencing Congress. Congress must act in the best interests of the American people – and resist the big money insurance companies.
The US needs to move to a Single Payer Healthcare system. Streamline the paperwork process and weed out the parasitic insurance plans.
Tell your congressperson that you want a Single Payer Healthcare system.
