As we have debates about how to cut federal spending this should be a part of the conversation. Why you ask? Well, whether you like it or not we already spend money with federal dollars on people’s healthcare, most notably through Medicare. This is an interesting piece even if you don’t want to think of it politically, but there are some very real reasons why our healthcare is by far the most expensive in the world (and yet we aren’t near the healthiest…). I am not posting this to encourage people to only be skeptical of people working in healthcare of course, but researching stories like this can be very useful.
