Health Insurance, Benefits & The Marketplace [Opinions]


I am conducting an informal poll, yo.

What do you think of private v. nationalized health insurance?

My position:

  • Money corrupts the healthcare system.
  • There is no space for a profit when it comes to health initiatives.

The position of several friends and family members:

  • Money will save healthcare.
  • Put health initiatives in the marketplace and watch the system improve.

The positions are much more nuanced, of course, but I’m trying to keep it brief.

What I want to know is this:

  1. Who’s right?
  2. Who’s wrong?
  3. What’s missing?
  4. What do you think?

Also, how did you arrive at your position? Are you a policy wonk? Do you have a personal story? Let me know!
