Definitely worth reading today is the latest entry by DrRich, who graciously took up my invitation to comment on ( and explain to me) exactly what the deal is with the proposal by Dr. Fuchs and Dr. Emanuel to fix the current health care mess with a voucher system.
In his first of a promised two part series DrRich begins to dissect the concepts underlying the Emanuel-Fuchs proposal. As usual insight-filled stuff.
As a physician and occasionally as a patient I have seen both sides of the "there-really is-a free lunch" thought process. There is no end to profligate spending if you are spending or even think you are spending "some one else's money".
