More Sad News for US Healthcare

According to Wall Street Journal, the latest Senate Health Bill would raise number of uninsured to 22 million people by 2026 compared to ACA, the CBO says.  

This news is depressing.  

There are politicians who think this is “good” for America, for millions to be without insurance, forced to make life or death decisions based on money or lack thereof.

The United States remains the only industrialized country in the world with a dysfunctional privatized health care system (excluding Medicare/Medicaid).  We have the most expensive care, with the least effective outcomes, in relation to cost.

Every other major industrialized country has already long ago established a single payer system (or some variation) such as Canada, Japan, United Kingdom, Australia, France, Sweden, Norway, etc.  

I read recently that Warren Buffet said the greatest threat to capitalism is the cost our health care system.  It’s untenable.
