On Healthcare

There is a lot of talk about health insurance. My own opinion is that you don’t need to insure against health, you need to insure against sickness.

In China, people pay the doctor when they are well. They don’t pay the doctor when they are sick, because the doctor has then failed.

Insurance should be against illness and against sickness. So, if we call it “sickness insurance” we might be more on the mark.

And, there should be one single payer–namely, the state–to make sure that all people, men, women and children, do not suffer terrible economic difficulties when they become ill. Most of the bankruptcies these days come from people not being able to afford care, so it is essential that we get single payer insurance.

And, we should have a huge educational program for preventitive sickness care.
