Profit More Important Than People

A sad factor in the nature of America’s health care system is that it is so backwards and places more importance on profit than on providing care for the people who need it. Health insurance should be available to everyone, so that children don’t die of cancer simply because his parents have lost their jobs, and people do not have to go into bankruptcy to survive an illness. Unfortunately, the structure of our health insurance system leads to exactly that, at an alarming frequency. Insurance companies are more concerned with declining coverage to all but the most healthy, leaving people who need insurance the most out on their own. Has America’s emphasis on rugged individualism left us cold and unfeeling toward the suffering of the people around us? What will it take to change the focus from profit to protecting lives?
