Yep, your greed based form of capitalism works really well, don't it? And North America has some of the highest cable and internet and cell phone prices. What, we got signs on our backs sayin` "GOUGE ME!"?

but even still there's nothing stopping them from raising prices afterward.
Except for yet another business cropping up.
Altaru, no one is saying that the system we got is acceptable. But from fiscal conservative standpoint it is far better than most other countries as they have ridiculous schemes to hide the real cost of healthcare. These practices ultimately drive business away from those countries, making healthcare more and more scarce. Secondly, the solution being put forth by the left is in the very same nature of what has been proposed and enacted before to solve the very problem. Not only does it fail in doing so, but it has even been sponsored BY the corporations you hate so much. In short corporations sponsor regulations to protect and enhance their market share, creating an effective monopoly.

Not before the incumbent lowered their prices. Prices aren't the only way corporations can crush a business, but even still there`s nothing stopping them from raising prices afterward.

Ignorance. I can pay up front for CT or MRI scans, it`s called two-tier health care, look it up because I`m sick of explaining it to those south of the border.
