Germany's doctors are far ahead of ours in technology. This , I know, because the US army says so.
Americans have become more health conscious in the past few years because of the raises in the cost of healthcare and prescription drugs. Who can afford to pay to go to a doctor, unless they are insured?
Who could afford the price of common medicines, such as Lipitor, without insurance? ($125/month)
One thing about our health care system that worries me is quality. Thousands die each day due to medical incompetence. If a Doctor's license is revoked for Malpractice, they just move to another state and start over.
Unknowing people put their own lives in danger, because they have no way of knowing about this Doctor's past.
If our postage is regulated, tobacco, liquor, etc., then Physicians and health care should be regulated also.
