A healthcare system based on a "for profit" corporate insurance base makes absolutely no sense.
The current system is sadly broken and needs to be completely overhauled. This includes a lot of things:
-eliminate a system where it is in the interest of insurance companies to maximize their profit by denying services
- put safeguards in place that limit frivilous lawsuits that currently drive the costs skyhigh and encourage Drs. to use procedures that they otherwise wouldn't in order to cover their ass.
- eliminate a system where the uninsured have no choice but to clog the emergency rooms with non-emergency situations resulting in extremely high premiums for otherwise low cost procedures, which incidentally are passed on to everyone (other than the corporate insurance company)...
That's just a start....and basically part of Obama's plan.
