Bloomberg Business Week cover story: "Why Won't Americans Listen to Alan Simpson and Erskine Bowles?"


Note this chart, from Joshua Green's cover story on the fate of Simpson-Bowles and their efforts, including "Fix the Debt"  shows that virtually all of the long-term spending issue is found in rising healthcare costs.  So that might tell us that healthcare costs are a problem to be worked, by themselves.  

And if seems to be the case that one good way to make healthcare cheaper is helping people to become healthier!   A cure is cheaper than care.

Unfortunately, Simpson-Bowles had nothing to say about medical strategizing, other than cuts.  The evidence seems pretty clear across the board: Any message on healthcare that's just cuts is not going to fly.

  1. The HILL may be too corrupt to look for cures Jim because Pharma weighs heavy in their wallets and pocketbooks.

  2. Human physiology is the science of the mechanical, physical, bioelectrical, and biochemical functions of humans in good health, their organs, and the cells of which they are composed. Physiology focuses principally at the level of organs and systems.
    Most aspects of human physiology are closely homologous to corresponding aspects of animal physiology, and animal experimentation has provided much of the foundation of physiological knowledge
