The whole question of health care in America dizzies my brain. I’ve been reading articles on health care reform for my entire adult life and I don’t know what we ought to be doing as a country.
I do feel pretty strongly that the massive economic disparity in health care coverage and accessibility is a top-priority problem, as is tort reform (to drop the cost of malpractice insurance). I wonder whether any reform will come of all this fighting — the corporate interests are so big; our political will to make hard choices is so weak.
This post from the blog YourBrainOnEcon gave me a lot to think about. Take time to read the entire analogy and the closing comments.
