A refrain I frequently make is that we buy so many other products and services on our own, without insurance or a “system”. We go into the store and buy it. Maybe we have to research a little, compare prices and services, discuss with friends and family. Maybe we have to figure out how to pay for it. But we make a decision then do it. Why not with healthcare?
Does America have a “grocery system”? An “automobile system?” A “tourism system”?
The nation does, of course, have a “healthcare system” and the fact that the medical-services sector can’t be described as a market… well, it’s the prime cause of the “healthcare crisis.”
