The French system isn't faring much better, but they are shuttering hospitals rather than cutting as deeply into medication expenditures.
I don't really understand how so many people on this forum think our healthcare is even remotely good? I can't think of a person I have ever met in real life that described our health care system as providing quality care at affordable prices? Where are you guys getting these notions that all is well??? It is absolutely baffling.

Only the top 10% or people with incredibly good insurance can weather this without significant economic hardship or in many cases bankruptcy, ruin.
Who the hell calls that "good"?
If you look at statistics, rankings, indicators, almost all of them are embarrassingly bad for the U.S. compared to other developed countries. We came behind CUBA for gods sake.
Of course right-wing propaganda tells a different story, all is well the rich tell the fools, lol.
