Universal Healthcare Again

Just a couple of questions:

IF we had universal health care which would, yes, be paid for by yet another employment tax but which would, yes, replace the healthcare costs most employers already pay but which would be less than they currently pay ...

How would that affect the car companies and their pension plan payments as well as the current employee compensation?

IF the car companies go into reorganization would the trustee be able to bring them back into line by cutting all employees pay, managerial and line-worker, such that people could keep their jobs and the companies would be profitable?

IF both were to occur, wouldn't that work?

There is no question that a universal health care system would make American companies more competitive. And expanding access to health care to everyone is the right thing to do. What are we waiting for ?

We have seen that the private healthcare does not work well and the government run healthcare system has also failed in many countries that tried it. Private health insurance companies are unfair to sick people - sometimes people get disqualified because they have one of the million sicknesses listed in the pre-approval applications and those companies try to give insurance to healthier individuals because healthy individual = less doctor visits, less medications and less drug coverage = more profits for private health industry.

I think what we need is cooperation between government and private insurance companies. I do not believe it is right to list million health preconditions as a qualification test for applicants and deny them healthcare. This is unfair and barbaric! Can you believe in 20th century America we can disqualify an American citizen from healthcare coverage because 5 years ago they had an emergency doctors visit? That’s where the government should step in and redefine all rules for private healthcare companies. These companies should not be able to easily disqualify families for coverage and if they want to stay in the game they have to actively work with the people, not just push them away. I think the better model of such healthcare system is in Europe, where the doctors still get paid very well and every sick person can go to doctor and take care of the their medical needs.

So the problem is obvious: get rid of health industry lobbyists and drug company lobbyists and start listening to the people, it’s time to start addressing the average people’s needs. Until the lobbyists will have money, power and say, we will have this problem follow us in future as a shadow from dark past.
