Universal Healthcare - Pro

I cannot believe that I have not thought of this before. One huge pro of Universal Healthcare is that we will never have to worry about overpopulation in this country again. With the dissolution of any profit for new medicines, diseases will run rampant in the communities that do not practice good hygiene and participate in all kinds of risky behavior. I am going to predict that within five years of passage of any kind of universal healthcare plan, (besides Hillary's idea to force people to buy insurance, which is laughable) pretty much every drug company will close research facilities because new drugs will not be profitable. Well, unless the Fed sends in the troops to FORCE them to continue working at a loss.

There is a slight drawback to that "pro." The stock market would probably go to Hell in a handbasket, but who cares? We would have universal healthcare!

Please take the time to comment, you probably don't have too much time left.
