“Medical care”? Is that what it is?
The medical journal, The Lancet, is one of the world’s Big Three scientific journals of medicine; that’s the triumvirate of authorities for physicians worldwide, and the other two are the Journal of the American Medical Association, and the New England Journal of Medicine. On August 27th The Lancet published “Measuring universal health coverage based on an index of effective coverage of health services in 204 countries and territories”. Here is the visual that’s in it, which shows the United States as having, by far, the world’s costliest medical care, at around $9,000 per person per year, and yet as having lower quality of health care than virtually all other industrialized nations do:…
In May 2017, Axene Health Partners published their actuary, Chris Slaybaugh’s, study, “International Healthcare Systems: The US Versus the World”, which stated:
The United States is the only industrialized country in the world that does not have Universal Health Coverage for all citizens. … Rather than one system, United States citizens and residents are insured under a variety of sometimes overlapping systems. The United States is also the only developed country where a significant number of citizens are permitted to be uninsured and where a person’s employment can determine whether they have insurance and what insurance they have. … The extent to which medical bills contribute to bankruptcy is hard to tease out from other factors, but even those who are skeptical of the claim that medical costs cause the majority of bankruptcies concede that they are a significant contributor.13…
So we have a choice between bankruptcy and free access to medical exploitation and abuse?
These people can’t even be trusted with vaccine safety or HCQ for covid infection or a rational vitamin D RDA. They’re still feigning ignorance about cancer etiologies and treatments. They can’t even figure out umbilical cords or foreskins!!!! This is crazy. And we’re crazy to put up with it.
We don’t need single payer health care, we need to dismantle medicine and start over, without the robber baron’s “philanthropy”.
