Why a public health care system will not work:
To meet budget targets, governments reduce payments to providers and to buy equipment.
This reduces the supply of people willing to provide health care services (doctors, nurses, medical staff and support) and the supply of equipment (hospital beds, diagnostic tools, etc.).
Shortages develop, and those who are sick or injured, suffer.
They find themselves with health care coverage, but without health care.
Senators like this think a public healthcare system will work...
