The problem with healthcare in America is runaway costs.
We need to work on preserving all the good of our current system by making thoughtful changes aimed not at sweeping reform, but on reducing cost and improving results.
We can make healthcare more affordable -- and expand its availability. Those two principals should not be contradictory.
To do it, we need to broaden our focus from just curing those who are already sick to include educating people about good health choices.
We can encourage health and wellness, shift to an outcome based system for health care, and enact common sense malpractice reform so the patient and doctor are driving healthcare decisions, not lawyers and insurance companies.
