Regarding the article Consumerism, competition can solve problem:
I couldnt agree with this gentleman more. I have worked in the healthcare industry from the provider perspective, insurance carrier perspective and now large-employer plan-sponsor perspective for almost 30 years. National health insurance makes the hair stand up on the back of my neck. Not only will it fail, but also it will be less healthcare for more cost, and the cost will come from the endangered species called the middle class.
There is no more expensive way to purchase anything than individually.
