To non-US posters, the idea of having to pay for medical bills is shocking. What happens if you break your legs and you're broke?

private enterprise is important to people over here. in addition, and perhaps more importantly, it's viewed as being more capable of producing a higher quality product. america contributes a good deal to the global medical community. there almost certainly wouldn't the funding for many of those contributions if the industry were no longer privatized. the quality of the product (medical care for patients and the medical industry, would suffer. i tend to think that in america's case, that point of view is probably accurate.

if you've got access to a top insurance provider in the states the medical care is damn good.
and finally, medicine is a gigantic industry in this country. hundreds of billions are made each year in medicine. it's regulated, but it's entirely privatized. you may never be able to make the entire industry public.
