Saxby Chambliss Thinks U.S. Has Best Health System in World (Maybe for Stockholders)

Senator Saxby Chambliss:

"This country has the best health care in the world and the best health insurance in the world, but we can still improve it and make it better."

American health insurance far outstrips other countries' health insurance. (At least if you're a stockholder, which must be what Saxby's talking about here.)

He also said this:

He said he does not support any bill that interferes with the relationship between a patient and a doctor. "Every individual has the right to choose their own doctor and that's why I'm opposed to universal health care," Chambliss said. "There will come a point where the right to choose your own doctor will be made by the government and not the individual, and that is fundamentally wrong."

But it's obviously ok for our great health insurance companies to tell us which doctors we can choose -- and nobody minds because they know their insurance company is the best. If my doctor isn't on their list, it's no problem at all because I'm sure they'll find me a good one. After all, there are no insurance companies better than them in the whole wide world and it's very important that we keep them that way. Indeed, it would be very bad for the health of the insurance industry to second guess them about such things.
