    I see healthcare as a business and an industry in the US and there has always been the attitude of 'self-reliance' and the need to provide for yourself. In other countries it is seen as a service, therefore the attitudes differ and that's why people have a choice of public or private healthcare like education.

    It's a topic that all Americans (except the rich) are concerned about because it's always a case of literally can you afford to be ill or not.
