HAYEK and HEALTH CARE


M Hodak,

People die, people go bankrupt and people suffer dialy in large numbers in this country beause of a lack of access to healthcare. We are going to have/ we are having a national debate on health care. Much of it is centered around a universal heath care system as every other developed nation in the world has. And for suggesting I support the idea I'm a troll? I think the rest of the country and the world might argue just who is the troll here.

What is your solution? What is your brilliant solution other then to turn your back on the issue?


"Nor is there any reason why the state should not assist the individual in providing for those common hazards of life against which, because of their uncertainty, few individuals can make adequate provisions. Where, as in the case of sickness and accident, neither the desire to avoid such calamities nor the efforts to overcome their consequences are as a rule weakened by the provision of assistance-where, in short, we deal with genuinely insurable risks- the case for the state's helping to organize a comprehensive system of social insurance is very strong."

F. A. Hayek
