Are you really happy, or are you just afraid that changing it will just make an already poor system, worse?
I think our medical system is in dire need of overhaul. We hemorrhage money into the medical system and yet we put out the poorest results in the industrialized world.
It's disgusting to think about all the people that have died because of $, inept system, non-evidenced based care due to insurance policies/issues, and poor oversight.
In a non-profit good care/research with truly good results would be rewarded. The poorer would get sliding scale fees or free care that wouldn't impinge upon others because the money would be there to pay for it and not in the pockets of the mega-rich. In a non-profit system, doctors/CEO's would still make money, it's just the pharm/ins industry wouldn't make ridiculous profit, they'd have to re-invest it in the system.
A few mega rich would suffer for the good of all. So? Why not?

What makes you think that people will desire to go to school for 8+ years just to work for a non-profit industry? Capitalization provides the incentive to work harder and do better. It used to be that in this country you could do whatever you wanted to make the best of your life - by whatever measure you decide. If that means that you could get a great education, work hard, and make money then so be it. If that means that you get a job that covers the bills, settle down, have kids and spend your life raising children, then so be it. Why do the left demand that everyone else bend to their will? There are other ways to go about reform without destroying the whole system, that is, if destruction wasn't the real agenda.

Next question overall
Did you have your baby before, after, or on your due date?
