The survey of 2,500 federal employees and retirees found that 92.3 percent of them believe workers and retirees should keep keep their current health insurance and not be forced to purchase coverage through the exchanges. Only 2.9 percent thought the opposite. The preference for the Federal Employees Health Benefits Program was even more obvious when survey respondents were asked whether they think federal employees should carry their health insurance into retirement, as is the current policy, or enroll in Medicare; 96.1 percent said the current system should not be changed.
There is "no excuse" for the lack of national healthcare in the USA, but there is one good reason: a
national healthcare system would put the private insurance industry, middleman, out of business and thus it would be the end of a lucrative market in private profits. Anytime you prevent a capitalist from being a capitalist, you are on the way to "socialism" and "godless communism". And this of course, is a no-no in the good old United States, the last capitalist nation on this dying earth....BTW, anyone know why an Angiogram costs $798.00 in the US and only $35.00 in Canada? Or why a one day hospital stay in Germany costs $632.00 and in the US $3,950.00? C'mon, lets hear some rightwingwhacko spin?
