Rage against the migraine


This was d | GP Partner/Principal|27 Nov 2019 3:12pm You don't know your history or economics. The smaller the govt, the bigger the private sector/wealth creators/economy. The better the economy, the greater the opportunity for social mobility. Sure, cover emergency treatment and maybe access to primary care. Why should optional/non-evidence based treatments/non-medical treatments be covered by the taxpayer? The access to healthcare here is above what exists on average globally. Focusing on 'inequality', whether health or economic, whilst bankrupting the country, is ignoring the forest for a tree. Sure, you are free to help the 'less equal', and we all should, but surely it should be voluntary/for humanitarian reasons and not compelled by the inefficient state.
