I’m not a fan of the American healthcare system. It suffers from huge inefficiencies because of problems such as third-party payer , which is caused by government programs such as Medicare and Medicaid along with a system of tax code-driven over-insurance in the supposedly private sector.
But regardless of how much I grouse about the damage government causes in the United States, I can say with considerable confidence that the government-run system in the United Kingdom has even larger problems...
Mitchell cites recent articles on the higher death rates for patients caused by the government-run health system in the UK.
Such problems wouldn't develop overnight in the US if ObamaCare is fully implemented. But we would move more quickly in that direction.
