The rich don't want to be taxed any more than the poor person, dollar for dollar, despite their having a larger claim on the protections our society offers. Let's face it, if you don't have a bank account there's nothing for the FDIC to ensure, but you'll never convince a republican that such a liability disparity even exists.
Then there's the east vs west economic structural difference question: is it right for a middle man to make a profit on the administration of payment for necessary services? Communism says society pays for medical care and the cost is as cheap as they can make it for themselves. While capitalism says some private enterprise needs to do this because they will find a way to do it cheaper and still make a profit. This is not applicable when it comes to urgent and long term medical care under an FDA overseen system. And NO, we shouldn't throw that baby out with the bath water!
Now we have enough scientific-based information to shoot the premises of the idea of applying capitalism to the benefit from a doctor's or nurse's hands full of holes. The innovation in surgery can't be reduced to a commodity that is shipped around. People are trying to live their lives and hold jobs. That leaves the hardware used, and at some point there are just not enough planet earths to support the disposable cheaper! cheaper! society. We're seeing this in health care. And morality cannot be removed from the equation, and thus the question is begged: is it right for someone to make a profit off of healing folks, and if so how much is appropriate?
