http://www.nytimes.com/2007/02/15/business/15scene.html?ex=1173589200&en=ecc8fc1c53c8ff24&ei=5070 Another article for open discussion, which I think is a great overview of the US healthcare dilemma. Unlike the last article (which was more personable and biased), this one touches base with both sides of the issue. A very interesting point that stuck out to me was: "Annual health spending in the United States currently exceeds $2 trillion. A single-payer system that did nothing more than reduce administrative expenses to the levels of other countries would save roughly $300 billion annually." What are your thoughts?
