St. Maart: Government's got no business providing health care
The idea to outsource the administration of government doctor cards is in principle a good one. Too often in the past have the cards for medical coverage been used as a political tool. On a few occasions opposition members prior to elections would ask for a list of cards issued, precisely for this reason.
But, all in all, the decision deserves the benefit of the doubt. Government in principle should only establish criteria and not be in the business of providing health coverage, even if it is for its employees or those who can't afford it.
