If the American government truly wanted to fix healthcare for its citizens, it could absolutely do so. With a few changes in the structure of US law, people living in America could become far removed from the burdens of astronomical healthcare costs as well as a medical profession that, for all intents and purposes, has never worked properly in the long term management of diseases.
Here are some things that could be done:
- New legislation must be introduced and passed that changes the way medical research is being performed. As long as “for profit pharmaceutical companies” are running the show and allowed to overrun the medical arena with fabricated research studies that open the doors for toxic drugs to be produced and dispensed to the entire population base, people will continue to stay sick. No diseases will ever be eradicated!
- Medical research is a joke and in most instances is nothing more than pharmaceutical companies paying for a desired result they desperately want published concerning a specific drug they are pedaling. New laws must be passed that prevent these companies from overseeing said research. The corruption taking place with regards to medical research is mind-blowing.
- Make it illegal for pharmaceutical companies to advertise their products directly to the American healthcare consumer via television, radio and print media products.
- Get rid of private health insurance companies! Obamacare, Trumpcare, and any other health insurance products should be terminated immediately. Every US citizen from birth until death should be covered by the American Medicare System. And none of the 80% coverage nonsense should be tolerated. If you go to a doctor, hospital, dentist, or any other licensed healthcare provider, the bill should be covered by the government. There should be one healthcare payer, and his name should be Uncle Sam. Fund the program through the taxes already being collected.
- Legislation should be introduced and passed that makes it illegal for the pharmaceutical industry to lobby the federal government. Take the profit out of disease management and we will begin to see a medical system that has a new set of goals. The federal government needs to fund real research that is attempting to find a way to eliminate various disease. It needs to eliminate the research template currently in place that ensures diseases will be managed through eternity and never cured.
If we can’t invest our resources as a country in the health and well being of American citizens, what’s the point of anything else?
