Au sujet de l’accès aux soins de santé aux USA, par David Broussard :
In light of the SCOTUS decision, let me (re)state a few things here. Insurance does not equal healthcare. Most if not all of the people who have insurance under the ACA are not getting substantive healthcare because their deductibles are so high. You could make all the current plans FREE for every single person in the United States and you’d still have millions who would not be able to afford access to healthcare. This is why the ACA was flawed from the start. It does nothing to provide access to healthcare. It provides access to INSURANCE. This has lined the pockets of insurance companies (both through individual payments and through subsidies) while actually INCREASING the amount of money it would take to access healthcare for the individual consumer. This is a GREAT deal for the insurance companies because most of the people who have insurance are NOT filing claims since they haven’t met their deductible - they are just getting routine preventative care that they could have gotten WITHOUT insurance pre-ACA and for a better price. The LIE that ACA is built on is that people need insurance companies to access healthcare. It is, in fact, the biggest insurance industry reform dodge in the history of our nation. Rather than addressing the cost of healthcare, this has been another bait and switch by the insurance company lobby.
