Watch this video and you will understand why health care costs so much in this country.
It is NOT because we need government-run health care. No, that would be a disaster of much bigger proportions.
At least with the current system the health care industry has some ability to try and keep things under control. (Watch the interesting solution in which a hospital pays out their own money to solve the root cause.)
If we can fix this problem — by addressing the root cause at a different federal agency — health care costs will be much more reasonable for all of us.
