I am right in the middle of reading the new book, An American Sickness: How Healthcare Became Big Business and How You Can Take it Back by Elisabeth Rosenthal. Wow, what a great expose! I haven't gotten to the "you can take it back" part yet. So far Rosenthal demonstrates again and again how our US health care system is ALL ABOUT GREED and not about health (not at all). It's about making people rich: doctors, hospital administrators, insurance executives, pharmaceutical executives, device makers, the list goes on. The best thing to do might be to blow it up and start over. We could do that in our state, I'd bet.

I'm reading a similar book which was recommended by Chuck Marohn, titled Catastrophic Care: How American Health Care Killed My Father--and How We Can Fix It written by David Goldhill. It's been a real eye-opener for me to find out how much our system is really costing and why we get so little in return.
