Just a brief post – The Mayo Clinic has been touted by the President but the clinic has come out against the House proposal.
I don’t deny the need for rational health insurance policy but I am very nervous that the White House is pushing the process too quickly. Doing something bad could be much worse than doing nothing.
I appreciate readers who believe we need a single payer. However, all we are really talking about is who brokers the payments. The inefficiencies in the system and the incentives which drive costs must be addressed. Whether government can do this is an open question – one I am skeptical about.
