This is a follow-up to my post Government We Can Afford.
Health care? Fiscally unsustainable. It doesn't matter whether you are for or against Obamacare. The bottom line is accelerating health care costs, aging population, unlimited benefits, etc., are all leading to a fiscal disaster.
It's just not working.
What to do? Design a system that is fiscally sustainable, while providing the scope of services we need--fortunately some physicians have been working on an answer--
About PNHP | Physicians for a National Health Program: "Physicians for a National Health Program is a single issue organization advocating a universal, comprehensive single-payer national health program. PNHP has more than 18,000 members and chapters across the United States. Since 1987, we've advocated for reform in the U.S. health care system. We educate physicians and other health professionals about the benefits of a single-payer system--including fewer administrative costs and affording health insurance for the 50 million Americans who have none. Our members and physician activists work toward a single-payer national health program in their communities. PNHP performs ground breaking research on the health crisis and the need for fundamental reform, coordinates speakers and forums, participates in town hall meetings and debates, contributes scholarly articles to peer-reviewed medical journals, and appears regularly on national television and news programs advocating for a single-payer system. PNHP is the only national physician organization in the United States dedicated exclusively to implementing a single-payer national health program."
