You have it completely backwards. The failing private schools go out of business because parents quit sending their kids to them. Parents send their kids to private schools that have a good record of success.But what happens to the kids who were going to the school that went out of business? "Too bad kiddies, not making enough money this month, go home"?? And the whole way that law is written, a buisness is designed to make money, regardless of what is "right". They "owe their shareholders" the biggest return for their investments, not what is best for employees, society or the children.
If that were the case then how come private companies UPS and FedEx are more successful and customer friendly then the government's U.S. Postal Service?I believe if we each paid the money that is being spent on insurance (both individuals and companies) in taxes, the healthcare system could be remade into a functioning system that works for all, not just the wealthy.
In accordance with this thread's creator, we can't post links, so I can only suggest that you look up the definition of "socialism". If you do that, you will find that American police and fire departments, and military are not socialism.People freak out at the word "socialized" and it is absurd. We have a "socialized" police department, "socialized" fire department, "socialized" national defense, and why?? Because those are matters of life and death. We believe (as a nation) that all people deserve those services regardless of their ability to pay. Well, healthcare is a matter of life and death too. I think we as a society need to see that all people deserve proper healthcare, not just those who can pay.
