This is why I invoked the 'Cuba' model, where anybody that wishes can become a doctor, that long ago Castro pledged an MD education to any child that could muster through the program, the result is the finest care in the world for the poor.
Folks in the USA live so deep in the shit and lies they have NOT a fucking clue about the real world.
Almost all the pill's sold in the USA cost penny's to make, so they can be sold for nothing virtually anywhere outside of the USA.
The AMA has been a gatekeeper to keep good people out of the medical field since they banned home-remedy years ago.
Funny that outside of the USA you can walk to a pharmacy anytime you wish, and show the pharmacist your problem and get a treatment for a buck, anywhere in the world its this way outside of the USA.
So let's have the debate, and watch these leeches on society squarm like hell and go on about how the USA has good equipment or good doctors and clean hospitals and other bullshit.
99% of the world doesn't spend a dime on medical insurance cuz you don't need it cuz drugs and doctors are cheap and plentiful, but what the ASSHOLES that run the USA have done is make it impossible for the 99% to have cheap high quality care.
17% of GDP spent by the U.S. on health care with the 9% of GDP spent by much of the rest of the world, noted that the U.S. has fewer doctors and nurses per person, and said, “[t]hat kind of a cost, compared with the rest of the world, is like a tapeworm eating at our economic body.”
American Medical Association (AMA) has lobbied the government to highly limit physician education since 1910, currently at 100,000 doctors per year, which has led to a shortage of doctors and physicians' wages in the U.S. are double those in the Europe, which is a major reason for the more expensive health care.
An even bigger problem may be that the doctors are paid for procedures instead of results.
AMA has also aggressively lobbied for many restrictions that require doctors to carry out operations that might be carried out by cheaper workforce. For example, in 1995, 36 states banned or restricted midwifery even though it delivers equally safe care to that by doctors, according to studies. The regulation lobbied by AMA has decreased the amount and quality of health care, according to the consensus of economist: the restrictions do not add to quality, they decrease the supply of care. Moreover, psychologists, nurses and pharmacologists are not allowed to prescribe medicines.[clarification needed] Previously nurses were not even allowed to vaccinate the patients without direct supervision by doctors.
