And a resource: The Health Care Blog. My favorite comment at that blog:
Damn. What could be simpler than a single-risk pool Medicare-for-all system with no tricks of the trade, 100% coverage, no pre-existing disease issues, no wait times when changing jobs or even becoming unemployed, no COBRA, no employee questionairres to be later used to rescind an individual or group policy, and etc etc etc?
Will we ever get to be that smart?

From a Publishers Weekly editorial review of Maggie Mahar's Money Driven Medicine:
She traces how today's market-driven medical system emerged over the past century thanks to trends that gradually stripped power from doctors and gave it to corporations, turning patients into profit centers.
