"For you central planning types we know its not about money its about control. You control the healthcare, then you can use access to coerce the people to fall into line with your destruction of the American system. You know people would sacrifice their own health but some gubmint thug type comes into your work and explains how you have to vote a certain way and your child can see the specialist they are waiting to see for their asthma.
We know how it worked in the Soviet Union all the party types got all the healthcare and the people got whatever was left over or what they earned by falling in line."
^^^This. Very much this.
Another angle---let's say the system collapses of its own weight. A lot of people would die because of a variety of causes (talking purely health care-related issues). OTOH, let's say the controllers get theitr uber-planned medical system, and they kill off a lot of people because those people are too expensive to treat or too old/disabled/politically incorrect. Now, some would say there is no difference because a lot of the same people end up dead either way. To me (getting up there), there's a HUGE difference in my dying of natural causes and my being murdered because it suits TPTB.
"You're not living in the story the world tells you you're living in. The story is not about the Clash of Civilizations, the March of Progress, the American Dream, the Rise of Civilization or the Struggle of Race, Class, and Gender. It's about the triumph of Jesus Christ in rescuing us from this passing world and bringing us into eternal ecstasy and perfection."---Mark Shea
