"the cost that should be shared by the community part" is really the heart of the controversy/disagreements. In particular the business community tends not to see the "sharing" aspect of it as in a capitalist economy, the costs have to be passed on to the consumer; and when the competition for a product includes identical goods produced in a country without universal health care, the consumer definitely tends to select/purchase the products with the lowest price points. Consumers are not oblivious to the consequences of buying foreign made products, but they really, at least superficially, expect someone else to make up the shortfalls--a kind of "magic" solution to their choices. I'll leave out the graduated tax structure issue aspect of this for some other time, i. e., the time "honored" solution to costs that the rich, and near rich, across the board refuse as a solution---venture capitalists are motivated by profit, NOT by sharing.

Shall we bring back a wage and price control economy? [as if any western govt ever really fully implemented such a concept, even in wartime]. A salary mode of income, rather than fee for service, it definitely NOT music to the ears of health care professionals in the USA!!!
