Healthcare vs. Insurance Reform: You're Missing the Point

|

Obama and most Americans want one thing but are demanding another:

They say they want affordable healthcare and then demand insurance regulation.

But until the cost of healthcare is reduced, then there’s no way to reduce the cost of insurance. The insurance companies won’t operate at a loss, that’s guaranteed. And if the government picks up the slack, then it’s you and me who will suck up the difference. That will only go so far and last so long before the country collapses.

Simply: if you want lower priced insurance, you’ll have to find ways to reduce the cost of healthcare.

Congress should take the “retreat” as an opportunity to do what I said a long time ago: fix the root cause of the problem, and not the symptoms. Examine why healthcare is so expensive and fix that. Then insurance costs can be reduced, or if necessary, regulated.
