Pharmaceutical companies ruined healthcare. Greedy insurance companies ruined healthcare.
Many parts of the country have few to no illegals and still a fucking lousy expensive healthcare system.
We are a nation of immigrants.
The roots of ruination in our health care system date back to the immediate post World War II era. We were the one industrialized country with an intact infrastructure. Our healthcare was unequaled. Greedy businessmen made decisions that set us on a course of employer based health insurance supplied by private companies rather than a unified national system adopted by every other advanced nation. This also began 70 years of rhetoric about the evils of socialized medicine. Add on top of that big Pharma, an entitlement culture and a cultural mindset that treats health only as treatment of acute illness rather than the prevention of illness and you have the mess we have now.
Those ill eagles should all just die already.
Nobody is illegal,r5, and everybody dies.
illegals did not ruin healthcare. You do realize they pay taxes right? They pay sales tax, income tax all the taxes you and I pay. What they don't get is a refund.
Illegals contribute billions to the economy.
The greedy pigs at insurance and pharmeceutical companies ruined healthcare with their outrageous costs, and nobody has ever stepped in to do anything about it. $5000 for medication is deplorable.
I said nothing about anyone being illegal, R6
What r4 and r8 said.
Plus, Immigration has NOTHING to do with our screwed up health care system.
What you're paying for in pharma is the research. Do you have any idea how much it costs to develop a new drug? Millions and millions and millions of dollars over many years. Then you have to pay for the litigious mindset culture. A lot of research is unsuccessful so there are millions down the drain every day and yet for research to continue, the pharma company has to make money.
How fucking innovative do you think a government run healthcare system will be? The government has completely bankrupted every program it touches and we're up to our asses in debt because of it.
This class warfare is only going to get worse. Illegals are the target right now. Next will be all the fat, unhealthy people weighing us down. I can't wait until we all start carrying around an official card that documents our health status.
Bitch about pharma and big business all you want - it's way better than what's coming.
The phucking pharma research is supported by taxpayer government grants. More taxpayer investment which supports exorbitant corporate bonuses.
Wake up r11. Stop drinking the koolaid.
That's funny R12.
And precisely why those in academia are leaving in droves for industry.
There's no more government grant money. There hasn't been for years now.
Take a freaking business class.
