I agree but I see little of decency these days in society.
I would argue that even those saying they don’t want to pay for someone else’s health care need a public care system. As it stands this is like hiring an accountant and requiring the successful new hire to be an embezzler.
Right now every insurance company is a predator/parasite. The basic idea of pooling resource among a population for the common interests means that we are paying for the embezzlement (insurance) industry to steal from us and to skim off the top, the bottom and anywhere in between.
Essentially they “hire out” to us by appealing to our fears of disaster but they are really extortionists. Like so many other con “artists” and low-level street criminals they are only helping themselves.
Oh, and did I mention that my health costs for all of last year (2018) (some cost, because I am a non-combat vet) were the huge amount of $30 as copay for two prescriptions. I got labs, examinations, consults, bp machines, ultrasound, vaccinations and more at no cost. And I then I get follow up from them. They keep me up to date by getting me to schedule my exams so I don’t forget (speaking of which, right now, I have a little mail message urging me to call for an appointment and noting that they tried to call but couldn’t get me - [they do call and mail and email - and I forgot to update my landline phone number to them after a recent move]). That’s a public health care system. This shouldn’t be just for vets of any description, it should be for everyone. There’s more than enough money for it, after all think of how much is currently being paid to insurance companies who embezzle that money by denying care. And you can bet the insurance companies are unlikely to send notices to make sure you are on schedule with exams, shots, etcetera.
