Thanks for the comment.

In fact, I think a lot more people view health care this way than we might sometimes think. But, one of the biggest barriers to real change is the very powerful health insurance lobby. Also, there are some myths about what univeral health care means and doesn't mean, and some who think that such a system would create longer waits to see a doctor, and would somehow result in poorer health care. But, the evidence just isn't there. Universal health care would be better for everyone. For a new and well-written report about the U.S. health care system and possible changes, see this.

Amen. If only more people looked at health care this way!
