Again, 80 years ago we also had a healthcare crisis in America - it was too cheap! The government fixed that problem alright. If we had a free-market in healthcare, the price for treatment would be extremely cheap and the service would be excellent. Oh well, instead we're going to try to go the route of Universal Healthcare where the well paid buy private and go to private hospitals and reasonable health service and the poor and less fortunate act as testing meat in the public hospitals as surgeons cut their teeth on them as they work their way out of Public Healthcare and into Private Healthcare. If we're really lucky they'll Publictize Pharmaceuticals too. Oh, Joy! Oh, Joy! You won't see the Obama's OR the Mitten's sending their family to Public Hospital - hell no. Much like Public School, their kids go to Private.
