The death knell is relying on the medical system as one of financial cornerstones of the economy.
You need a healthy workforce to be a productive workforce. Yet the average person cant afford medical treatment. ObamaCare is a first step for catastrophic protection and the unanswerable but doesn't do much for the average healthy worker. The deductibles are too high.
