"If more people really understood how much their insurance was costing their employer, whether private or public, I suspect there would be a mass movement to improve our health care system. We certainly are in the position to provide top-notch care in this country, but we have a crazy hodgepodge way of paying for it. And too many people get left out because they just can't afford it anymore."You are absolutely correct! Our Kafka-esque, byzantine health insurance system will eventually bankrupt us all. Consider that 40 cents of every healthcare dollar goes to administrative costs. Other industrialized nations have come to grips with healthcare costs (and with better health outcomes). Why can't we? (notwithstanding that the insurance lobby is one of the most powerful of all in Washington).
