Why is there a health care debate anyway ?
Rational economics theory states a person will always work in their best interest, a person would debate for economic policies which have their best interest in mind, after a quick mental balance of self-interest and cost.
Health care is a great example, we all will get sick and need care. Individual rational economics would dictate that insurance is required and the cost kept low.
That reasoning conflicts with the current health care debate and the total economic structure currently in place.
A for profit insurance company would be the illogical choice, empirical evidence has proven that profit driven health insurance is discriminatory to the sick, which we will all be at one time.
So my question..
Is the ability to rationalize this conflict a learned trait or an instinctive reaction to preserve self from an unknown harm?
1) The economy is not sentient
2)We will all get sick
