    If you could only change ONE thing to make an improvement in U.S. Healthcare, what would it be?

    I'd switch to a single-payer system.

    Bernie Sanders will be introducing a single-payer bill in the US Senate in the next few weeks.

      I agree, I think that is the only way we will ever pull ourselves out of the healthcare/insurance crisis. Bernie has always pushed for it, I think now, they have to take him seriously, he's the only one that has a viable solution.

    Find a way to negotiate lower prescription drug costs.
    It makes no sense that U.S. citizens pay higher fees for drugs made by the same manufactures that are sold in neighboring countries such as Canada and Mexico.
    Since pharmaceutical companies are primarily focused on coming up with "maintenance drugs" as oppose to developing drugs that "cure" it's clear profit is their (only motive).
    Every other TV commercial in the U.S. is pushing Rx drugs.

      What makes it even worse are the lists of side effects for each drug, but of course they have a medication to offset each one

      A medication to correct a medication to correct a medication. It's a neverending battle.

      We take more prescription drugs than any other country!
      More often than not a law firm takes out ads asking if you took such and such drug (which was approved by the FDA) but now there is a civil lawsuit! One pill requires another to counter it.
