The fact that we do not have a National Healthcare Insurance in the US means (more than likely) that either one's employer pays for it or individuals themselves do out-of-pocket. Which means this: *Companies must recuperate privatized HC-costs from the products/services it sells, meaning further, *Their customers (we-the-sheeple) thus all help pay for the company's privatized HC-insurance. Meaning also, *A great many of its customers who cannot afford private HC insurance on their own are obliged to to pay for others who are covered! *Meaning the privatized HC-system in America today is Greatly Unfair! And why should the case be different for government employees? Meaning the health-care of government staff is paid out of Income Taxation is a privilege that need not exist just for a select group of Americans. But such unfairness is decidedly the case today in America. From "Overview of the Government Health Care Programs" here: Which provokes this question "And what about the other two-thirds?" Why not a National Healthcare Service for everybody financed by national taxation* - just like it exists today for those who work for the American government ... ? *Yes, of course that is going to augment total government expenditures - and very likely higher taxation to cover them. But, why not compensate by: -Reducing the expenditure of the DoD now comprised of fully more than half the US Discretionary Budget (57%)! (See that fact demonstrated here.) Or, -Raising upper-income taxation that is presently comparatively unfair and even indecently low.
