  • I am really sad that they are relying on something that doesn't exists yet to fund a huge program like this.

  • The Preventive Care Myth.
    http://townhall.com/columnists/CharlesKrauthammer/2009/08/14/the_preventive_care_myth

    This article examines whether preventive care could actually realize the savings being claimed.

    ( Interestingly, some people read this article to be saying that preventive care is not VALUABLE. That's not the point of this article - of COURSE its author believes in the VALUE of preventive care, he just explains how it will not save boatloads more money than the status quo. )

    And as to claims of OTHER forms of savings - streamlining paperwork by having a nationwide database of every person's medical records, etc. ... I cannot credit it.

    Creating a HUGE new bureaucracy, and extra paperwork in 53 agencies is NOT a credible way to save taxpayer money.

  • It's like buying a car without knowing what the payments will be, but assuming if you give up your morning latte, you will be able to afford it. LOL
