In March 2008, the U.S. government's Department of Health and Human Services published a press release stating:
This year the HI Trust Fund will spend more than its income, and from 2009 through 2017, about $342 billion will need to be transferred from the Federal treasury to cover beneficiaries' hospital insurance costs.
Medicare's Hospital Program Went Broke in 2008. Nobody Noticed.
In light of this, who in their right mind would want government to get more involved in health care? As one doctor noted, our current system is anything but a free market. Another doctor candidly said the government is the problem in health care.
Paul Krugman thinks that the free market cannot cure health care. Find out why he is dead wrong. We cannot afford to have government screw up our health care system even further than it already has; please write your Senators and Congressmen to voice your opinion.
