it is what it is... and it is quite unfortunate. Driven by procedures, could name a few specialties, some of those guys make $1,000,000 yearly -- and that is sick cash... procedures procedures procedures... that is what makes money..
It always pisses me off when people lump obvious good ideas (e.g., eat right, exercise, quit smoking...basically just take good care of yourself...duh) in with totally useless things (Qi Gong...? Give me a freakin' break) as if they were all equivalent.
Of course, I'd expect nothing less from an article co-authored by that lot.
The fact that this is receiving national attention only shows that politicians are as gullible as everyone else.
Paradoxically, it is the huge amounts of money spent on many of these procedures, such as the angioplasty example from the WSJ article above, that will make it difficult to reduce their usage. That much income will not be given up without a fight, regardless of societal costs or lack of effectiveness.

i mean they can bail anyone out with any amount of money it seems
