Healthcare Not A Right
America is a sick country and getting sicker by the moment. So, is it any wonder that healthcare costs continue to surge out of control, outpacing every other sector of the economy.
Dr. Marty Makary, director of surgery and health policy at Johns Hopkins University, says 17 cents of every dollar spent in the U.S. goes to healthcare, which is one-sixth of all spending. Additionally, 48 percent of federal spending is healthcare related and, as of 2018, healthcare became the biggest business in the country.
