Everything We Believe About Healthcare is Wrong.

This blew my mind.

We are letting our HMOs, drug companies and medical supply providers decide what our healthcare should cost us.

According to The New York Times:

The United States spends about 18 percent of its gross domestic product on health care, nearly twice as much as most other developed countries. The Congressional Budget Office has said that if medical costs continue to grow unabated, “total spending on health care would eventually account for all of the country’s economic output.” And it identified federal spending on government health programs as a primary cause of long-term budget deficits.

If we are serious about ending both individual and national debt, we need to take a look at our healthcare spending.

We need to shift our view of healthcare to preventative health measures and call loudly for reform.
