    You're misunderstanding what he's trying to say. He's not trying to say your system is bad. He's trying to say that most of the democrats in the USA aren't actually pushing for some form of socialized healthcare as it exists in Australia or many European countries. He's saying they actually push for a hybrid program where the government foots part of the bill and insurance companies cover the rest (i.e. subsidizing health costs, proposing "medicare for all who want it", increasing eligibility for medicaid etc.). These proposals allow health insurance companies to continue to play a large role and result in a meaningfully different incentive structure. He's using the term "subsidized capitalism" informally to convey that.

    here is an overview of some things in the American system. Helz can correct me if I'm wrong about any of these:

    Medicare - a program that provides healthcare to those aged 65 and older, paid by taxpayer.

    Medicaid - a program that provides healthcare to people sufficiently poor via the taxpayer. (but unlike what you may be thinking, you have to be REALLY poor to be eligible for this, afaik)

    VA - the closest thing to an actual socialist healthcare program in the US - taxpayed healthcare for veterans. Unlike with medicare where the government pays for private hospitals, the government pays the hospital directly.

    Health insurance - As the name implies, you pay a private company a monthly premium to get healthcare when you need it. However, it's more complicated than "Pay X a month, then get help when you're sick". There are also copayments and deductibles. A 20% copayment means you pay 20% of the cost of some treatment, while the insurance company pays the remaining 80%. A deductible is an upfront payment you make when you want treatment to get the insurance company's assistance in footing the bill.

    Obamacare - Under the Obama administration, the affordable care act was passed. It reigned in some of the most exploitative aspects of American health insurance (i.e. being able to refuse coverage to people with pre-existing conditions being among the most famous). They forced everyone outside of the south to get health coverage or pay a fine (again, unless they're super poor), but they also expanded medicaid and subsidized insurance to everyone in the lower-middle class outside of the south.

    Oh okay. Well I wasn't talking about what politicians where pushing, more so what I hear the people asking for. I don't see how neither party endorses the system everyone else uses but I guess America just likes to be different?

    For just ~$15 a week ($10 USD) you can all have health insurance!

    I know it's more complicated than that, but you get the idea

    edit: never mind just googled your healthcare budget. what the fuck?

    Basically. The democrats also take extensive donations from the health insurance companies. With a handful of exceptions, any democrat that gets anywhere has to kiss the ring, and the exceptions still have to bow to the will of the party.

    The whole situation is a total clusterfuck.

    This obviously doesn't fully explain the cost, but this is an illuminating example: Medicare is forbidden by the government from negotiating costs of drugs with pharmaceutical companies, afaik. So if pharma says they have to pay 50x the price every other country pays, medicare bends over and says "okay daddy". The same issue applies with other industries.

    Corporations control the healthcare system PRECISELY BECAUSE THE GOVERNMENT HAS ALLOWED IT TO. I don't know why government would ever need or require bending back to corporations, This is one of the BIGGEST MISCONCEPTIONS in understanding the economics of capitalism -- this is NOT the result of capitalism, because capitalism implies a LEVEL PLAYING FIELD for ALL competitors to provide the BEST SERVICES possible. But when government decides to demarcate the rules and "associate" with certain corporations out of "good faith" and "interest to the people", well look at that, dipshit, you have subverted the playing ground so that one party is favored, and the other is not. This cronyism exists out of good government faith and it is doing no one any good, with the quality and affordability of such products. Of course, the level of care in America is still great, but getting access to it is another. It really takes me back to a time when some asshole decided to send me an unsolicited message saying: "Well i should be honest with you just to let you know Iím very dominant, like Iíll put a leash and collar on ya, bend you over on all fours with your ass in the air, plunge my dick in that little pussy of yours, start pounding it from behind pulling the leash choking you a bit with it, while I use my other hand grabbing your ass and teasing at your asshole." Imagine the speaker being the cronyists and the government being the submissive fucks. This is the conglomerate aberration that is the result of continued "good faith".

    To oberon's credit though, oberon does a better job of disavowing nazis than trump.
