    question

    You and I draw separate conclusions about the cause of and solution to high health care costs.

    I need only look to Canada to see what nationalized health care would become. Google "Canadian health care crisis" and see what you find. Residents there spend 40+% of every tax dollar for medical expenses, then get to be put on a waiting list for a few years to get a torn ligament in their knee repaired.

    My general rule: If you think something is expensive and inefficient now, just wait till the government runs it.

    What we need is more personalized control of our health care dollars. Health savings accounts are a huge step in the right direction, IMO.

    We also need tort reform to help bring down insurance costs in the health industry. Unfortunately, the dems are supported heavily by the trial lawyers and therefore want to perpetuate the litigation-fest we have now.
