2. Profit seeking is "superficial" concern when it comes to matters of human health and human life. Wall St. owns our health care industry. If my child needs an expensive operation in order to live a normal life like other kids; and I've been paying premiums for years expecting to be covered in these situations; I don't want Wall St. bankers deciding whether the procedure is profitable for their firm. Those clowns nearly destroyed the entire economy with bad mortgages and derivatives; you think its safe to leaave health care decisions to them??? I'd rather insure my family with a legitimate health care institution not an investment bank.
3. Americans don't want socialism; nor do we want cowboy capitalism which has brought us to the precipice of economic collapse. We want the best of both worlds. Americans are liberals with a libertarian streak. We want freedom for INDIVIDUALS but regulation for CORPORATIONS!!! Do you understand this concept???
4. France which is accused of having "socialist" medicine have better results than we do in deaths from heart disease and other major categories of illnesses. American medicine is good but its not so good that we can't learn from others.
