Do we have classic socialized medicine in the United States?
Do we have national healthcare inspired by European
Democratic socialism? What we have is political medicine.
With socialism goods and services are rationed by something
other than price.
Who gets what or how much in terms of healthcare is
determined by political power. Those with little or no political
power have get very little to none in terms of healthcare.
How does ObamaCare kill? It turns doctors into clerks and patients into commodities.
Insurance plans are actually life management plans and have no characteristics of
genuine insurance. Under Obamacare preventive healthcare comes down to starting
patients with anointed maladies on big pharma life extending prescriptions drugs.
Doctors no longer talk to patients about genuine preventive measures like losing weight.
A doctor’s role is no to mine for problems to exploit on behalf of the huge financially
powerful firms which lobbied for decades to get the pill passed. After those are found,
any other patient issues are explained away, postponed or ignored.
Doctors now act as agents of the state helping to carry out national healthcare agendas.
From your doctor, do you get his opinion or a political opinion? Truth is not used in
politics. So, is truth used in medicine?
This is why the death rate in the U. S. is increasing. It is going to get a lot worse. When
was the last time you can remember a bad law being repealed in the United States?
