It is not surprising that the country is against the current health care reform proposals. Do they really think we want higher taxes, higher insurance premiums, more government, more bureaucracy, less freedom?
The public has been saying this pretty loud and clear for a while now. It looks like Congress may finally be listening.
Health care in this country certainly needs reforming. It needs more price transparency, more competition, individually owned health insurance, more consumer involvement and personal responsibility. Basically, the opposite of what is currently being considered.
Succeed at unleashing competition, and we’ll see prices dropping, and innovation soaring. This has already happened in the lasik eye surgery business, which has plenty of price transparency and competition. The future looks bright, if we look in the right direction.
