    i picked up a copy of the wall street journal on a train today and it discussed the US healthcare bill. It seemed to say it is being proposed that people will be compelled to buy private insurance? I was bemused. How can a state impose such a solution? Surely this is the ultimate in state control, that an important social service is farmed out to a private body not responsible to anyone whose only objective is to make money?

    How did the US get itself into such a mess? The state takes on social responsibilities which can not be handled individually, for the greater good. many countries have nationally run medical systems. They have specific taxes to pay for this, but it is all done explicitly as part of national taxation and the state regulates how the money is spent. Money is automatically redistributed to provide services according to need, not according to ability to pay.

    I see why so many people in the US want to have nothing to do with this. I take it the US government is utterly controlled by private industry.

    same way the insurance companies got the government to pass laws to make people buy auto insurance. this is the bust government that money can buy.

    Hell, if I could get as good a deal on buying Health Insurance in the USA as I do buying Auto Insurance, I'd buy three or four more Health Insurance insurance policies.

    Might be a Freudian slip, but seems more accurate with the misspelling for some reason. :wink:

    I'd stay away from health insurance stocks.

    Look instead at medical technology stocks that will benefit by more patients being approved (capable of arranging for payment) for their medical solutions.

    This is a good one - ISRG. Intuitive Surgical.
