    Would you switch health care system?

    From this topic http://www.debatepolitics.com/educat...erkeley-8.html "Dittohead not!" mentioned that no non-americans want to switch health care system with the US. I wan to see if that is true.

    Also, post why you do or don't want to switch.



    Edit: Only government health care - means that private health care is illegal. And everyone get the same health care. Canada is an example of this system.

    Government health care with private option - Means everyone can get government health care, but if you want to you can get private health care. And people getting private health insurance is encouraged. Australia is an example of this.

    Other: I live in America and want a deregulated medical system.

    The other options are merely gimmicks and/or fallacies of a single cause.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    Well, the question is what system would you prefer. Would you prefer the Canadian system, Australian system or the American system with all the imperfections that they have. If there was a country with a more libeterian system than the American system I would have listed it. So if you could choose between something similar to today's system or the other ones, which ones would you pick.

    None of the above.

    I don't want regulated medical care as we, or any other nation, have it now.

    People often make the fallacy that because we don't have UHC, or some form there of, that is why we have so many problems.
    When I have exhaustively put forth multiple reasons that can skew our results.

    The intellectually lazy way is to say UHC/Single payer is the answer.

    Edit: The closest nation that I could agree with would be the Singapore system.

    Re: Would you switch health care system?

    I prefer the american system, I dont know much about the australian system and what I can tell you about the canadian system is we have clinics set up here in florida that cater to canadians and I was told the ones that can afford it come here for health care.
    My wife has many facebook friends from england and she tells me none of them are happy with their health care either. Keep in mind they are all in their 50s and 60s. Younger people will have a much different assessment of health care systems basically becuase they dont need it like the older people. If I were answering this question at 30 my answer would have been I dont know enough about ours or any other health care system to give an honest answer.

    I'd like to ban all health insurance except for catastrophic coverage and have people deal directly with their provider. That option was not available in the poll, so I went with government HC with private option.

    First and foremost take all treatment decisions out of the hand of insurance companies and solely in the hands of providers.
