has a great article on the health care system called Such a wonderfully ironic twist....
It is a lengthy post but covers a large topic and explains why the current non-system in the US costs so much more than any other country, but produces less.
One of the main points is that a truly efficient health care system is not profitable, and, therefore, the private sector has no incentive to develop such a system.
Read the article and understand why a single payer system is the best of the current options for controlling spiraling health care costs and providing access.
