I am 63 yr old vet, college educated, I spent time in New Zealand.
When they formed thier gov. , they set out the parameters of what gov should be. The resources of the country belong to the people for basic needs, those are health, education, food, and housing. The gov takes care of those and the luxuries are your problem. I was impressed with the gov, health care, and the people. Handing over as was done early in this country, the resources, and the basic needs of the people to private capatalistic intities doomed this system to failure as we are now in.
Benevolent capitalism does not exist, greed takes over. human nature. Health care for corporate profit has proven to be a joke.
It is not different than handing over the rights to the air we breath to Exxon or Enron, Which may be the next thing that congress does, because quite obviously we have a for profit congess.
