The Reason American Health Care is So Expensive (and Why Single Payer Won't Fix It)

We all know that healthcare in America is much more expensive than in other countries around the world. But why exactly is that? Well the folks over at Vox decided to put out a handy video to explain exactly why that is.

It's mostly about how private health insurance companies spend a lot more money than they do in other countries. But there are many reasons as well. And that's part of the reason why switching to a single-payer system would help the problem, but it would not entirely fix it. 

It's definitely an interesting video to help explain why our healthcare costs are so ridiculous compared to other countries around the world.


Nowadays, would your parents still be upset if they caught you consuming cannabis? Parents these days have much more progressive opinions on cannabis, and perhaps if they caught their kids consuming, they wouldn't necessarily punish them. While some parents still want their children to wait until the legal age to consume (if they choose to do so, at all), others don't believe it would be the end of the world if they "caught" their kids smoking pot earlier than that.

Can we see some ID please?
