Health Care Justice - NC welcomes Dr. Margaret Flowers to Charlotte
On Monday, May 22, 2017, national health care advocate Dr. Margaret Flowers addressed a meeting of Health Care Justice - NC.
Dr. Flowers made the important point that the delivery of health care in the U.S. is not a system but "a freak of history." Dr. Flowers presented a history of the haphazard assembly of health care delivery in the U.S. as opposed to all other industrialized countries, which all have non-profit, universal health care delivered at half the cost of the U.S. with superior health outcomes.
Dr. Flowers also discussed the increasing interest of businessmen such as Warren Buffet who has recently made the point in the media that businesses should be less concerned about taxes and more about having the extraordinary burden of health care taken off their shoulders and made into a public utility as it is in countries with which we are in competition.
The meeting was an excellent opportunity for people who may have reservations about such change to voice their concerns and to have them addressed so competently by Dr. Flowers.
