Health Care for All

I think it's unconscionable that the health care industry in our country is run for profit.  How did we get to this point?  I'm astounded by the fact that we have a pay or no treatment policy in the United States of America.  My husband is having a series of tests right now and we are being forced to pay before any treatment is done... not after.  With an $8000 deductible and $13000 insurance premiums we're paying for it all.  How did we get to this point?  Why do the medical insurance and prescription drug industries have some of the largest lobbying budgets and profits in the world?  PROFIT!!!!  Where do we the Americans fit in this picture?  We pay for it!!! With our blood, sweat & tears... and the industries have no regrets!
