The Oregon Health Insurance Experiment: Evidence from the First Year
Short abstract from Science magazine:
Insuring Greater Health
The thrust: health insurance increases preventative care (avoiding much greater costs later) and increases quality of life. I don't need a gaggle of Ph.D.s to tell you that!
Now, how to fund it? Perhaps the elimination of executive salaries and "shareholder value"? More taxes is not the answer. We've got to stop the parasites ingesting the insurance premiums, co-pays, and shares of cost and giving us stool in return. That's the business model of both Obamacare and Romneycare.
Of course, an alternative could be the Paul Ryan "plan": die, so we can have more in the bank. But I don't think most Americans are that monstrous.
