4. It is for profit. Unfortunately, which politicians are going to tell doctors, nurses,

 

medical assistants, pharmacists, techs, people who assemble and maintain medical devices and equipment, etc., to take less?

Obviously, we can cut some overhead out by getting rid of for profit insurance. But, are we going to get excited about going from $1000 month in health insurance premiums to $900, by cutting out insurance companies.

Iím fine with telling CEOs, stockholders, etc., to take less. But that wonít make much difference in costs unless providers and support staff take less.

We need to cut whatever we can, but healthcare is expensive here and in every developed country.
