No you're not off the mark.noam wrote:surely it'd be more beneficial for the people to have an increase in taxation which would cover some sort of national health service instead of the inflated insurance premiums everyone has been complaining about??
is it more complex than that??
also i dont see how a government run health care system is a threat to capitalism and free enterprise...? the pharmaceutical companies, the contractors who build hospitals, the entire infrastructure surrounding the 'nhs' is all private- enabling governments to actively sponsor private sector businesses.
or am i way off the mark?
The Government doesn't need more money to run their healthcare system though, they already spend nearly 3 times what the UK government spends per person on healthcare.
The problem is, the system is corrupt, not regulated enough and financially orientated.
