I don't agree with 100% of this piece from The Atlantic, but it does a fine job of analyzing why our health care system is so screwy. This guy's proposals are light years ahead of anything floating around Capitol Hill this year.
It's fairly long, so allot some time.
In other health care related news, I'm giving up on co-ops. Not that they couldn't be helpful if done properly, but the potential existence of "good" co-ops wouldn't change my opinion on HR-3200 or anything that remotely looks like it, and the heated argument between conservatives over co-ops obscures the fact that HR-3200 stinks to high heaven.
