Anyone wondering what I'm talking about start here:
The Psychology of Persuasion
I would think changing the insurance industry to public utility status with a maximum considerably smaller profit the "house" can win on a "bet" in the insurance "gamble" might be effective with respect to healthcare insurance.
But healthcare itself, there's little more tweeking that can be done without significant adverse side-effects.
When the election is over and we open our eyes, it will sadly be too late to wonder what the hell just happened.
The first step toward fixing the health care system in this nation cannot be anything other than to completely repeal the ObamaCare scam, and to remove from office every single legislator who had any part in enacting it in the first place, as well as the President who signed it into law. Until this is done, it will not be possible to repair any of what is wrong with our health care industry.
The five great lies of the
We can be Godless and free. • “Social justice” through forced redistribution of wealth. • Silencing religious opinions counts as “diversity”. • Freedom without moral and personal responsibility. • Civilization can survive the intentional undermining of the family.

"Thread: What should be the first step to fixing healthcare in the US?"
Making government understand that this issue is beyond its purview. In other words, if you wouldn't hire a bunch of publishers to fix your car, then don't hire a bunch of lawyers to fix your healthcare.
It's really as simple as that.

After all, the US does have the highest level of medical expertise of anywhere in the world. All of the medical doctors I know think this and send their children to the states to study, if they can afford it. That is driven by the cost of treatment and we would lose competence if the costs of treatment or medicine are capped.
As for insurance, it seems silly to have write a few Thousand pages to say that everyone must have it and that it will be checked and punished, where people have no insurance.
Living healthier lifestyles.
Costs are up, not because of insurance, but because of the unhealthy lifestyles of the average American.
