There are always risks in challenging excessive police power, but the risks of not challenging it are more dangerous, even fatal -Dr. Hunter Thompson
It is so simple to fix that the paid off politicians are very afraid the people will figure it out and fire them. The simple solution is to fire the insurance companies, figure out what it will really cost, and raise the taxes, (Mostly on those that can afford it most, the wealthy) and start a medical system "not for profit" that will benefit every legal resident in the country, and most likely those illegals also. Train doctors for free, let them work it off on low pay for a certain time in public medicine, and get on with solving our fiscal problems and our corrupt political system, by getting money out of politics. I realize this is an oversimplification, but damn it, why all the complication? Freedom should include the right to be healthy.. While I'm on the subject, I believe it is time to start replacing Capitalism. I'm pretty sure we could come up with a better system that would not benefit the people with the capital/money so dominantly. How about worker owned businesses. How about doing away with wall street and the Banksters that control the world. We outnumber them 100-1. What the fuck is wrong with us??

Gee, why do you suppose there are so many laser eye surgery centers? Hmmmm, let's see... there must be a demand for it. Even though most insurance will not pay for laser eye surgery. Hmmmm, maybe THAT is why. Yeah, that makes sense. When people have to pay for something, they have a vested interest in getting the most for their money.
You got closer than gw but the answer is competition.
mass producing, optics and computers has made that technique cheaper how difficult is it for you to understand
i want to take back about the car market not translating as it does in a way
you have to consider the entire market as a whole and its based on need only to be used when you hav to.
the majority of the time your healthy so you ride the bus we all do.
when you get sick alot of the time 10-20 yearold technology (cheap basic car) works perfectly fine so thats what you use while you need it
sometimes something more serious arises and you need something more powerful (fairly high tech bmw) so thats what you use while needed
in rare cases someone might need everything we have so they get to use the beugatti
now as the years pass the beugatti's get faster, as do the middle cars, with the basic cars getting more features but you dont get the picture without consideering them all together
