“We have the only health system in the world based on avoiding sick people.”

“One thing is certain: We need a complete overhaul of our health system. Tinkering at the edges won’t do it. Expanding coverage through government subsidies and mandates, as advocated by the president, won’t either. Besides being a windfall for insurers and drug companies, that approach will just add to our soaring costs and be a temporary fix, at best. In my opinion, it makes no sense to throw good money after bad.”
