Don't Let Health Care Bankrupt America

by George C. Halvorson

We cannot afford to spend as much money as we spend today on health care. Health care costs are destroying state and federal budgets and health care costs are driving American families into financial collapse. We spend twice as much money on care as the rest of the world’s industrialized nations.

Most of those countries get better care, faster care and more care than we do — and they all spend a lot less money in the process. Health care saves lives. That is wonderful.

Health care costs can impair the financial functioning for the lives that are saved. That is clearly not wonderful.

It isn’t right for care costs and expenses to destroy the lives that are saved by care.

This book explains how to resolve those issues.
