Re: Health Care Showdown (Mark Schmitt & Megan McArdle)
Megan fails to consider other contributing factors to health care costs. We pay insurance companies and MD's way more then other countries. Why?
I thought libertarians despised unions and like it when companies can negotiate down workers salaries. Well, imagine the health care system as a big company with the insurance and MD folks as their workfroce. In order to make this business leaner and meaner we are just going to have to negotiate down the overbloated salaries of some of its workers. Either that or the company goes bust and then we'll all be out of a job. Now that would suck!
