I'm a libertarian (or anarchist). What folks put in their body should be their business. I am a capitalist (but not a laissez-faire capitalist). If you are a laissez-faire capitalist take a look at Mexico, India and the U.S. during the robber baron period with the likes of Vanderbilt and Getty. With laissez-faire capitalism one person ends up with all the money. Think how evil socialism is. Think how great for profit libraries or highways would be. Think how good life would be if someone made a profit every time you flushed the toilet or turned on the tap. We have a hybrid systems that seems to work pretty well but needs constant tinkering.
Universal healthcare is one of those areas that would benefit from a little socialism. We (the U.S.) are paying about double what any other industrialized country is paying (about 10% of GDP).
To me you sound like a Democrat. There was a time when conservatives believed in keeping gov't out of the bedroom, medicine cabinet etc. Those days are long gone. They've always abhorred gov't in favor of private sector economic solutions. That's why it is so bizarre for me to hear so many gov't workers support Republicans. For Christ's sake, there is no more "Socialist" entity on the planet than the military.
Due to technological advances, there has been some reasonable de-regulation in areas like utilities. Where an area was once bound to a single supplier and required gov't oversight to prevent unreasonable monopoly profiteering, now several companies can compete. I don't mind that. Hell, I like that.
I'm afraid there's no good solution to health care. If it's for profit than a few with money can get everything at the expense of many who can't get anything. If it's gov't run, there simply won't be enough resources to provide everyone with everything, so there would be rationing by necessity. That would bring out dingbats like Sara Palin (Trump's bud) to scream incessantly about the gov't killing granny.
That ACA seems like a decent enough compromise. It helps get many insured and the private sector insurance companies can then ration the care. Conservatives don't seem to mind when insurers do it.
One of the MANY nice benefits of the ACA is that the gov't can force insurers to spend a certain percentage of their premiums on actual heathcare. Prior to the ACA, there was a CEO of United Healthcare that was personally pocketing the majority of healthcare premiums because he could. Conservatives love that. It's how people like Trump get to be people like Trump...
