Mark Stapleton Posted December 24, 2007 Share Posted December 24, 2007 The problem with government is that the corruption and inept actions run deep. We have a very good track record to examine in the US where Governmental control of heathcare is concerned...Medicare. Quite frankly government has made a huge mess of it. Thanks but no thanks. Governmental oversight fails sometimes with spectacular consequences. I'll take the market and freedom of choice anyday. BTW, I'm not arguing that our system is not without problems and in need of reforms. My argument is that I have less trust in government than I do in the market It sounds like you're worried about Government waste and mismanagement. If so, look at the US Government Defence Budget. Those dopey wars. There's corruption in Governments but there's also corruption in the marketplace, as demonstrated by big pharma. It comes down to how highly you value the provision of health services. The Government ostensibly answers to the people but the private sector owes nothing to the public. Which one do you want to trust if things get tough? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
