Why must ALL of you presume the worst and least equitable aspects to universal healthcare? I never said give a tax credit to only Americans that lack coverage. Everyone should get a tax credit that works... period. My scenario actually absolves business of paying for rising healthcare costs vs. global competition that has none!
The employee chooses how and where to spend the credit. The market determines what options are put on the table. And those that want to purchase more, out of pocket, are still capable of doing so.
This isn't "oomunism" but good, common sense which is sorely missing in both healthcare and pharmacare. It just tends to benefit low cost providers... which does not necessarily include Walgreens... which is why my view is so wildly unpopular on this board. Remember, on this board if it doesn't reward Walgreens and its overpaid pharmacists and management, it is an unpalatable and unwelcome opinion that surely was rendered by some idiot.
