Be assured that this is a hard subject for me. For I was raised as an unapologetic capitalist, and what fuels capitalism is profits.
On the other hand, can good healthcare be really run as a business? For it is a standard business practice to abandon the things that are no longer profitable in favor of what is.
Alas, I have heard Rush Limbaugh say on many an occasion about business in general when I was a devoted follower, “They’re not in business for their health. They’re in business to make money!” Is this the kind of doctor and/or hospital you want to go to when it is matter of life or death, and aren’t the pharmaceutical companies in the same boat?
No, I am not saying that the people who work in those fields should not be allowed to make a good (even great!) living. For I recognize all of the effort involved, but they really should be in business for our health, along with their own, of course.
