The problem with our healthcare system in this country is that we spend so much money on it. There really is no denying that we have some of the best quality insurance in the world. The problem was making it more cost effective. This plan takes us in the wrong direction.
It wasn't just the ER doctors, it was the nurses and the specialists seen. Everyone was talking about it. The problems they had with it surrounded around the idea of every time the government has regulated in the past things always got worse. That and the sheer cost/taxes/lies that it's budget friendly/etc turned them off from it.
Eventually it turned into a debate of "if they want to kill healthcare they should have two separate institutions like public and private schools", only if you opt for private care you should be entitled to "vouchers" or your tax money back. They basically said if all these supporters really think a government option or increased government regulation is such an improvement and so wonderful they should put their money where their mouth is and stop mucking it up for everyone else.
Health care professionals complain about things like documentation and infection precautions
Would you really like it if your family medical history was handled in a lax manner, or your history was confusing to a doctor reviewing it
But most complaints have to do with infection precautions, and many Americans already die from infection caught in a hospital, if you sent your parents there I doubt you'd want a place with happier health care workers with a higher rate of infections
As health insurance costs continued to rise, more younger and healthier people will drop out, everyone I know who didn't have kids wanted to drop their health insurance, and when you have older and sicker people, and increasing medical inflation, premiums even for younger people will skyrocket
There are only two possible cures, a mandate or single payer
