Thomas Sowell sums up the health care discussion...
...or what passes for discussion:
Politicians may talk about "bringing down the cost of medical care," but they seldom even attempt to bring down the costs. What they bring down is the price-- which is to say, they refuse to pay the costs.
I am reminded of a book from the 70s, Forty Centuries of Wage and Price Controls,which is happily still in print.
