And people who live in the middle of nowhere would be the ones who would pay the most for such a thing.
It is so funny…people try to say anything the government runs is less efficient than private industry.
The Postal Service is actually quite efficient and would turn a small profit if allowed to escape its ridiculously onerous pension mandate.
Medicare is by and large more efficient at delivering better coverage at a lower cost than private insurance.
People forget what capitalism is good for and what it is not good for.
It is by far the best way to generate economic wealth that we know of.
It is terrible at delivering a “universal good” that all people need at at least a basic level.
If I can’t afford the latest iPhone or car, I can survive with a used vehicle or a cheap way to access the Internet.
If I can’t get health coverage, that becomes problematic and also becomes more of a drag on the economy than if I had some basic coverage guaranteed.
