As the SCOTUS reviews the "Affordable" Care Act [View all]

I can't help wonder how, or if, we will ever get to away from the grip of our privatized system here in the USA.
Sure I like many would love to see a single-payer public insurance system. In fact I think health care, in it's totality, should be a public service career, but that is a different story.

But I look at how the current for-profit system is integrated into our economy. From investments in mutual funds which many retirements rely on, to drug manufacturer stocks that these same funds invest in, to all kinds of inroads our privatized medical system has spread to within the economy like a malignant cancer. Extracting these tentacles to secure a public based system without affecting the overall economy in an extremely negative way seems impossible to me unfortunately.
