Look at public schools, public housing, and public rest rooms. Look even at ... public defenders.
Now, people are clamoring for even more public medicine (socialized healthcare), which if you are in it you get low prices but lousy quality. If you are not in it you might get decent care but you'll certainly get exorbitant prices, to compensate for those people who are getting the low priced (but lousy) care. There are medicines which cost hundreds to thousands per month to the uninsured - to make up for the people on Medicaid/Medicare paying twenty bucks.
Brilliant!!! Why haven't we thought of this before?
It's looking like 'the people' know what they want ... and deserve to get it good and hard.
