Good ol' U.S.A.
No, it's both.
Regulations drive up the cost in certain aspects because you need to make sure the quality of the procedure and the supplies are up to par, but the corporations involved also mark up their prices quite a bit because obtaining maximum profit is their #1 concern.
In other words, the quality of the healthcare in the U.S. is probably better than Spain's on average, but also more expensive. The price could be brought down by getting rid of regulations, but that would also lower the quality. The price could also be brought down by regulating the prices set by corporations involved in healthcare, but that would cut into their profits.
Corporations have to raise their prices because government entities tax them extensively in an effort to supplant quality care with state care, but why?
I hate Communists...
to raise their prices. Again, as I said earlier, prices are driven up by both factors. Corporations usually offer higher-quality products, especially here in the U.S. because of all the regulation, but the prices are driven way up by both the increased expense of regulation and the corporation's drive to maximize profit.
How is you hating communists relevant to this conversation? Government healthcare and communism are two very different things.
Communists like to cut corners in an effort to nationalize vital infrastructure.
Healthcare is no exception to this…
Marxism's like Asprin. It's marketed under a million different names...
First, you're oversimplifying communism. I don't support communism, but I also appreciate history and understand what communism was meant to do and why it didn't work.
Second, even if we follow your definition and say that communists like to cut corners and nationalize vital infrastructure, that's not what happened with healthcare reform in the U.S. It was an expensive program and it didn't nationalize healthcare. It only created a government plan and brought some new regulations on private insurers. The government competing with private industry is not the same as the government nationalizing a private industry.
Finally, even if we say that cutting corners and nationalizing vital infrastructure is what communists like to do, and even if we say that's what the government did, doing something that a group likes to do does not make you part of that group. Communism is a very specific economic theory, and the capitalism practiced here in the U.S. is extremely far from it.
It doesn't work because it deprives enterprising men and women of the incentives needed to make any form of advancement. Why invent something if the State will take credit for it and leave you where you've always been? No incentive, no advancement.
Communism is not an economic theory, it has been proven to be impractical on a grand scale. Now Uncle Sam's inching closer and closer to it…

Double that Standard
I don't like the way you said that.
There may be times when a Gentleman deserves to be hit, If that situation arises and a lady smacks him then bu no right does either lose their standing.
Also, Women are not always weaker, but at the same time a hit thrown is rarely not deserved.
And, to take someone out seems unnecessary. If someone hits you and it was undeserved, hit them back with as much force. No more, no less. One does not need to get mad, only even.
