I take issue with Dave Clark stating that 'the health care system is broken'.
Health care isn't broken, it's 'broke'. There's a difference. There is a
crisis of health care financing yes, largely because of the creation of 3rd
party payers (including state and federal government) that distanced patients
from knowing or caring about medical costs as well as personal accountability.
Health care financing will not be 'fixed' until those fundamental problems are
addressed. However, it is likely that state and federal government will
continue to seek complex solutions. I recommend reading Thomas Sowell's take on
this and other social issues.
You're right but at least the State is trying to do something productive within
the parameters imposed on them by the Feds.
I would have to agree with MC, Look at this Toyota issue. There was a problem
with the manufacturing of the car, it was broken. What did they do? Did they go
to the dealership and try to fix how they sold it, or try to sell it a different
way? No, they went to the core issues of the problem, the raw materials and
fixed it. I know it's a stretch but that's what's happening here! Go after the
core issues of health "care" reform which are the costs of health care=
Dr/Hospital/RX/lawsuits/Patient responsibility (lack of). They are simply
treating the symptoms, not the problem. Enough with government "help" already!!
