I have Canadian friends who are perfectly happy with their healthcare. France has the same type of healthcare & my friend's sister was able to get cancer treatment for free. She's now in remission & didn't have to stress out about medical bills. That said, I don't like the idea of entirely eliminating private health insurance. I believe in France people can have private insurance as well. I do think healthcare should be available for everyone though because there are some people who are too sick to work but don't qualify for disability (or are on a waiting list to be approved which can take several months) so they can't afford care which makes their health worse. People are dying because they can't afford necessary medication. Honestly, I think looking at insurance to solve the problem is treating the symptoms rather than the disease. They need to tackle big pharma as well as get some regulations in place to stop arbitrary price-gouging from hospitals. The whole "for profit" system for medical is just not working out for sick people. I'm not saying there should be no profit at all, but it shouldn't cost $1,000 to sit in a waiting room at an ER or $8k for a test that only costs a few $. I know I'm beating a dead horse with this, but medical care and medicine should be treated like an essential resource & price-gouging should be banned. There should be a limit on the % of charge over and above what it costs. Especially since many hospitals get all sorts of subsidies for people who can't/don't pay. If they didn't charge such insane prices maybe people would be paying more (sure, some would still refuse to pay, but more would be able to pay). Ernesto, did you notice that whenever the legal expert the GOP called in started to say something negative about Trump, they immediately shut him down? I did notice that he had the opposite opinions of what he wrote as his opinion about impeachment before-- saying that an actual crime was needed when previously he said it wasn't. It was also hypocritical that he said a president should be impeached for lying about sex but then ignored the fact that Trump lied about having sex, then lied about the hush payments he made to hide the affair, & had his fixer threaten people. Granted, he had the affair before he was in office and didn't it in the oval office with an intern BUT he still lied about it & tried to cover it up.
