Insanity is, by definition, doing the same thing over and over again expecting entirely different results. Nowhere is this insanity more obvious than in the current health care reform proposals coming before Congress where the proposals look far too much like more of the same. We’re apparently going to be content with treating symptoms instead of coming up with a real cure.
Let me say right off that I fully acknowledge that the current course is not sustainable. Costs have been runaway for years and both the quality and availability of health care is in the pits. Acknowledging that there is a problem is just the first step. We need to understand why health care stinks before we can take any sustainable action.
