    Posting the data publicly won't do a damn thing to change price levels.  Prices aren't determined by information but by power, the leverage hospitals have over patients.  Patients are sick, injured, near death persons who don't have the ability say to the ambulance driver, "hey, can I check the cms.gov website first?"

    Only if this information leads to popular mobilization around the issue will we see anything change.  Like a successful push for socialized insurance.
