Scott Keller on Health Care
Q: Do you agree that "More funding for health coverage, but change model"?
A: True. Added/clarified stances:
A: I guess "no opinion" is the best choice from the options given. I'd prefer to answer "none of the above" or "other approach". I don't prefer Federal spending under the current debt-based, tax laden economic system. I'd prefer local options, with more LOCAL spending. Also, health care should be non-profit, and we should do our best to remove greed and conflicts of interest from the equation. Currently, if there are no sick people, the doctors, hospitals, and drug company execs don't get paid, so it's not in their best interests to help people be healthy.
A: Support. I believe that before any funding is sent to the health care industry, the conflict of interest needs to be removed from the equation. As long as doctors and medical research organizations and pharmaceutical companies and so on are dependent upon people being sick in order to earn a living, the health of the patient will be at odds with the health professional's income. New reverse-compensation models, local compensation models, and other innovative approaches to ensuring the above professionals are taken care of while encouraging them to permanently heal the patients and keep them healthy need to be implemented.
