Medical Care (not just insurance) is a for-profit system, and that is why it fails. People want high quality medical care provided to them, not moderate quality care with a price tag. The dude from Sicko who had to pick which of his two fingers would be reattached and which would be thrown away would have both fingers if profit wasn't an impediment.

Beyond that, research from taxpayer money goes to universities, and that should be where our best and brightest research comes from. We don't get the benefits of proprietary in-house research that is kept behind closed doors, so private medical research (for profit) is an impediment in everyone being able to research and distribute best equipment and medicine and education possible.
