Check This Out Regarding Prices (Price vs. Cost)

Some interesting points:

Before Medicare, seniors spent 10% of the income on health care. Now with Medicare, and the government picking up 95% of the tab, they pay 20% of their income on health care.

As to the notion that technology has driven up costs, no -- just think of how laptop computers are becoming less and less expensive as time marches on.

As to the alleged "value" of preventative care, no -- another fabrication. It in fact doesn't bring down costs or improve health.
