When are we going to come together and just say enough is enough?  These are the bad guys. They have gouged the American people long enough. This does NOT mean I believe in a government led healthcare system.  That would be going from the greedy to the moronic. I believe there are answers, however.  I believe a grassroots free market system would work. It works with Direct Primary Care.  It works with the Health Sharing Ministries.  The latter can be made into a secular model with the same community sharing mindset.  People helping people.  That’s how good things get done.  That’s Authentic Medicine.  Please share this so others can open their minds as well.

    Um…there already is a “secular model” for health sharing ministries…its called mutual insurance.

    These CEO’s are not bad people. If I could get paid $20 million a year I would not personally feel bad about it. They get paid a lot of money because they make a lot of money for the stockholders. The stockholders are really the greedy ones.

    Now if you can explain to my why there are not more mutual insurance companies out there. It is probably because they can’t get startup capital, because, after all who wants to invest money in a company that is not going bring them a profit?

    I’ve seen this graphic or a version of it several times, and its usually been used to try to justify a socialized medicine system. Anyway for the sake of discussion these CEO’s salaries are a tiny fraction of medical spending and are not directly responsible for the problems in our system. What they do reflect is the emphasis on profits, and that is certainly a factor towards high health care costs.

    If you buy into the theory that capitalism and competition will ultimately bring down costs, the pursuit of profits is desirable. The trouble here though is that there is an overall lack of competition, and that is combined with extensive underlying structural problems in the way health care is provided and paid for.

    All that is a long-winded way to say people will read into this graphic what they want. Blaming US healthcare problems on greedy CEO’s is very easy but it avoids hard conversations.
