Republicans are on the wrong side again in the new Congress

The Republican Party took over the House of Representatives, albeit with a much smaller majority than expected. So what can we expect from them in regards to healthcare, a serious matter? From their own political statements, nothing, as I point out below.

The French health care system, considered by many to be the best in the world, is basically universal Medicare, with additional insurance for teeth, vision, and so on. The per capita cost of the French system is half ($5,564 per capita) than ours ($11,945 per capita). In addition, the French are relatively satisfied with their healthcare system, while we are not.

But in our country, the previous leadership of the Democrats in Congress simply didn’t have the power that the lobbyists and their money had over the conservative Democrats/Independents in key positions to unilaterally adopt something like the French system.
