An idea for health care: If we’re going to go into economic crippling debt for this, maybe can we just bypass insurance companies and have the gov directly build clinics, pay for the education of docs who go into primary care, and pass tort reform? Then at least we’d have something more useful than profit bloated share holders when it all comes down. Oh, and another stim package? Why are they taxing us to save companies who, often because of unethical practices, can’t manage to make their business successful?
Oh and guess what? Building clinics gives work to people = economic stimulus.
We have been a country run by anectodal evidence for too long.
