I’m a little confused.
I just watched House Calls on CNN.
Everyone agrees there’s a crisis in America, part of it being that 15% of the population is uninsured. But people keep saying they don’t want a system like in France because they didn’t want the government making decisions about their health care.
Except in France, the government doesn’t make decisions about health care; your doctor does.
Presidential candidates on both sides keep talking about changing the system, yet they’re also saying, “We’re not advocating a system like the one in France.”
But if French health care is considered the best in the world, covers everyone, and the average premium per family is less than $150 per month—why not advocate a system like it?
