If we really want to fix healthcare we need to be ready to do the following:
1) get the lawyers out. Defensive healthcare is expensive.
2) get the insurance companies out. The paperwork adds much expense
3) bring pharmaceutical prices in line with the rest of the world
4) bring physician wages in line with the rest of the world
5) get healthcare administration costs under control
6) make patients accountable for their health.
obviously, I have just listed all the powerful lobbies in America.....
