I guess my beliefs would label me as a conservative. And I believe you have a reasonably good understanding of my healthcare principles. Here are some additional considerations:
- Health insurance is not the same as healthcare. I encourage my liberal friends to stop recommending a financial tool to provide equal care. Insurance is great at pooling risk, not reducing costs.
- The conservative desire to reduce the prominence of government and insurance companies in healthcare is about lowering costs. Lower costs means more people will have access to care.
Conservatives don’t want people to die. The hyperbolic rhetoric prevents rational conversations. Thank you providing a healthy forum to exchange ideas.
