14. A National Health System is what's needed. NOT Insurance.
Insurance companies ARE the problem. If someone wants to supplement their national health system care with a private complementary health insurance, so that for example, they can get a private room in a hospital instead of sharing a room, OK. In Europe, your employer will sometimes give you a supplemental health insurance policy as a benefit that works in a complementary way to the nationalized health plan which covers everyone.
