Our Constitution limits the power and authority of government over the lives of the Citizens. The more government controls the lives, the choices, and the thoughts of people, the more tyrannical the government becomes. As government becomes more tyrannical the quality of life is greatly diminished. This is true for all countries, not just the United States.
In the United Kingdom we are witnessing this fact. The UK placed health care under the government as opposed to the private sector. This is what the American left is telling us that we should do. If we acquiesce, our results will be the same as the results in the UK.
At the end of November 2022, a record 7.2 million patients in England were waiting for non-urgent medical treatment on the NHS, known as “elective” care. This spans diagnostic tests and scans, procedures such as hip and knee replacements, but also cardiac surgery, cancer treatment and neurosurgery.
More than half of those on the list had been waiting up to 18 weeks and about 400,000 patients had been waiting more than a year, according to data from NHS England.
To avoid joining a waiting list, more and more people are paying for their own private medical care or taking out health insurance.
In the second quarter of 2022, the number of patients paying directly for private hospital care increased 34% compared with the same period in 2019 to reach 67,000, according to the Private Healthcare Information Network, which collects data on UK private healthcare.
The citizens of the UK are returning to the private sector. They are fortunate they have that option. The option is not available in many countries. The American left wants to eliminate that option for American citizens.
Why government fails and the private sector succeeds is the very reason Marxists or Communists, or Democrats want to do away with the private sector. That reason is called profit. The Marxists, Communists, or Democrats, tell us that profit is evil, that it is the reason for oppression. But experience will show us that profit is the reason for excellence.
When the government is in control, the reason for excellence is gone. The reason Marxists, communists, Democrats, want all aspects of society to be handled by the government is for control of the population. History has shown that Marxists, communists, Democrats, have no concern for the welfare of people, but they are concerned with control.
The Marxists, communists, Democrats would argue that the private sector is more concerned with profit than the welfare of the people. Whatever the motivation of the private sector may be, the result is better for the people. The current conditions in the UK would not happen in the private sector because the profits would go down. Profit incentive is a powerful force for excellence.
