No frame of reference

Here's a post I think poses an interesting point, that Americans have no frame of reference with regards to healthcare. I would second that, with my limited experience of healthcare in Seoul, I'd say that American healthcare pretty much is awful for the common working stiff.

I went to Samsung Hospital today and the experience was pretty good. My Korean doctor seemed more concerned about my condition than any American doctor ever has.

Why people think things such as healthcare and education should be profitable is beyond me. They are public goods and in the US they should be treated as civil rights. Er, wait, isn't education already?
