Universal health care is such a complex beast that only 32 of the world's 33 developed nations have been able to make it work.

Q: which of those 32 started with private, for-profit health insurers? I'm just wondering how we can deal with $1T worth of publicly traded companies

It's a valid question. And the solution is above my pay grade or level of expertise. We should never have allowed public health to become a profit making industry though. Hind sight=20/20.

And none have the strict single payer plan Berns is advocating. Most look like the ACA with a public option and better price controls. Even Medicare isn’t single payer (by government) ffs

Actually, most of them are single payer. I'm not saying that's the best option. I don't have the expertise to make that judgement but, Japan and Taiwan are examples of where it's working well.

That's no different than our current system. It takes months for me to get an appointment normally here also.

Y'all need to watch this. It's what we use as intro to international healthcare systems for grad students. A bit dated, but excellent! Watch, and then discuss, "What's your favorite system?"Β
