LA TIMES: American Health Care System Does Not Work

A Los Angeles Times Op-ed entitled, 'Going Universal' makes the clear argument that the American health care system does NOT work. Remember, this is the system that Canadian right wingers want to force on this nation.

Here are some very good points that we need to put in the face of any Reformer-Conservative or Taxpayers Federation lobbyist who wants our medical system in Canada to be market driven as it is in the USA.

"THE STATISTICS, by now, are well known. Forty-seven million uninsured Americans. Premium increases of 81% since 2000. Small businesses failing, big businesses foundering, individuals priced out and, amid all this, skyrocketing profits for insurers, hospitals and pharmaceutical manufacturers. The American health system, put simply, is a mess."

Gee, ya think? A more interesting article they could have done would have been "Exactly How Much BS Will the Supposedly Free-est and Wealthiest People in the World Put Up With?".

Call me crazy but I think the reason we often have difficulties finding good answers is because we are often asking the wrong questions.

In the past 30 years, the costs of healthcare have soared in the United States. Due to rapidly escalating healthcare costs, Americans in ever increasing numbers have begun to search for alternatives that could reduce their personal out-of-pocket medical expenses. In the last few years, hundreds of thousands of Americans have chosen to become Medical Tourists.

Cost of medical and surgical procedures in Mexico is very low compared to what is paid in the United States. In most cases, the savings from their medical treatment can give people extra money for vacation. Indeed, a patient and his/her family can take a luxury vacation in a Mexican resort and pay for the trip with the savings they receive on getting their procedures in Mexico. Medical Tourism in the city of Guadalajara can certainly be a win-win proposition. While taking care of health needs at big discounts, shopping sprees, sight-seeing, cultural pursuits, and trips to nearby beaches and spas can all be arranged around a medical appointment schedule.
