Regarding Were on the doorstep of socialized medicine:
I would agree, but for different reasons. Our system of segmenting our citizens into different demographicsMedicare, group, individual, Medicaidis unsustainable, and noncompetitive in a global market. If we continue in our current direction, only those receiving government assistance under Medicare or Medicaid will have coverage. We will then, in effect, be a system of either government-sponsored insurance or no insurance at all.
Also, what do we do with addicts if we dont provide them with treatment?
