You're right that there are some implicit assumptions in what I suggest, such as, that we could raise our own game to the level of merely mediocre. We would have to decide that last place wasn't where we wanted to stay. But I, for one, think we're capable of this.
You actually have to work really really hard to do health care as badly as we do.
We pay twice as much as most countries, and don't cover anywhere as many people, simply because our approach is so off kilter. And the only reason we do so poorly is because the very wealthy have managed to take political control of the country and create an environment which caters to their needs to the exclusion of the needs of the majority.
This will end as soon as we decide we've had enough.
I'm there already. So is my neighbor. His neighbor is on the cusp, but he's wavering. I don't think it's going to take the average Trump voter very long at all to realize that they backed the wrong horse, do you? I mean...did you read what Trump's health care plan would have done to his voters?
I mean...even to the chronically stupid, taking health care away from 24 million people does not look like the best path to providing better health care outcomes for more people, does it? Even you can see that, right?
