Something needs to be done in our country to provide health care at a more affordable rate.
To quote Shakespeare:

"First, we shoot all the lawyers."

As much as debaters during the 2004 election tried to subordinate the issue, practicing medicine in the era of John Edwards litigation drives costs up dramatically...

Not the least of which is insurance against being sued; and

Prescribing test after test after test, just to keep all the bases covered, to minimize the exposure to risk of lawsuit.

Until the litigation thing is handled appropriately, getting Hx care costs down will be like the Army Corps of Engineers trying to pump water out of N.O. while the dikes are still open to the sea.
