In Fixing US Health Care Once And For All – 5 Crucial Steps I wrote:
… without addressing the 5 steps I outlined above, all other efforts will be completely and absolutely futile. Without addressing the root of high health care costs, it does not matter whether we let government alone take care of health insurance, or whether we completely liberalize the health insurance market.

We would still be faced with an inherent shortage of health care goods and services.

Meanwhile the root causes of rising health costs have not been addressed at all.
