When you fail to convince others of the merits of your ideas, you can always turn to government to force them on people.

Americans are getting killed by Private Insurance companies who are reporting RECORD PROFITS while we have a cost crisis. Does anyone see anything wrong here. Wall Street is less of a long term problem.Healthcare Costs are out of control as CEO's at these companies earn $ Millions $ per year.
Also, the government is not doing its job controlling costs. Why do Americans have to go to Canada to get the same drugs made by American companies for lees cost? Why do Asia-India-Europe and South Americans pay HALF of the COST for the same products made by American Companies? Who is doing anything about this? We all know it is happening don't we? Why can Japan buy the same Knee Implant made by a USA company for one half of our cost? This is both a private insurance and Medicare issue. If we think Government insurance is a bad thing, why are our costs out of control and unaffordable. Our hospitals and government are being overcharged by our own companies. Is this what is being suggested that we continue?We need to fix this.
