Myself, I'm perfectly willing to accept a solution which involves everyone just using less health care. The number of people who go to the emergency department for completely trivial ailments, hell, the number of people who go to the ED for completely non-medical things, is pretty stunning. The number of people with an actual emergency in the ED at any given time is usually way less than half. And we money we spend on prescription drugs is just mind-boggling. These new-fangled designer drugs are, in general, only marginally better--if at all--than the generic versions that have been on the market for decades, but sick people want to know that they're getting the absolute latest and best in medical care, even if that extra 5% benefit comes at a 500%, even 1000% cost increase.
