If my beliefs about this are one-sided, it's because I have the small example of every single other developed country in the world on my side. None of which spend anywhere near as much on health care as the United States does, and most of which get as good or better results.Me thinks your beliefs about this are too one sided.
Too one-sided? Maybe by American political standards, but I imagine that if you examined the views of everyone in the developed world and the vast array of health care systems that exist within it, you'd find that my views on this issue are a lot closer to the median than yours.
There are plenty of political systems more dysfunctional than ours, and they all do a better job in terms of health care cost efficiency.Also, politicians in America will have a hard time making those cost efficiencies in public medical care programs, actually materialize.
