American Medical Experts

Original post made by Info Seeker on Aug 22, 2009

On C-Span (22) I am and have been for 2 1/2 hours watching the finest medical care education show I have ever seen. Every aspect, Doctor shortage, open-ended Medicare deficit, delivery reform, lack of medical care for our future children, senior treatment becoming largest chunk of federal budget exponential % growth forever. Finest specialists, leaders in their fields, economists. Program by Health Affairs. Likely will be repeated several times in the next 24 hours on C-Span, possibly available at Health Affairs Journal.... now in it's 3rd hour...finest medical education available to the public I've ever seen. None of the participants are connected with any part of government....strictly medical.

Thanks for posting. I'm trying to get facts on this issue and am finding it hard to sort through the rhetoric and name calling on both sides. I did find this interesting: Web Link

I didn't know about how exactly some of the other countries health care & insurance systems worked, and there may be lessons here for us.
