Life’s are truly in the balance as many in our country lead us to a path in socialism. For even in the capitalist society we live in today there is a doctor’s shortage due to basically the layers of bureaucracy added to this career choice. With socialism coming into play the number of people seeking to get into the medical professionals will drop exponentially as the arduous task of become a doctor or nurse becomes even more difficult with loans being extended by years and years. For when pay is controlled by ONE government monopoly determining factor it doesn’t allow supply and demand to truly bring products and services into a field that is dying for it. To also believe those in government power won’t abuse that power for their own good vs the public is truly naive especially when competition is eliminated. New medical techniques and experimental drugs will put on the side as the government monopoly dictates what and when they will decide to pay for. Life’s are truly on the balance as we toy around with socialism for when it comes to medical care cheap is not really an option. Venezuela is just another example in history that proves when government controls disbursement we all become poorer and many more just die.
