    and sometimes the best treatment is less cost than the 2nd best treatment.  Take minimally invasive surgery vs conventional surgery...the surgery may be more expensive but since the recovery time is cut down by 75% the total cost is lower...

    Yes, we should pick the most effective treatments for diseases and procedures regardless of cost...if we do that...it will all work out in the end...

    As for my insurance situation...I am fortunate to live in NJ that has regulations in place that forbids denial based on pre-existing conditions and mandates community rating for premiums...so the cost is spread to the entire population as it should be...

    Keep on trying to sell this as those with good coverage have to give up their good healthcare...and you will get nothing...I am for reform and insuring those without coverage...but not at the expense of my healthcare...and that is the majority of opinion in this country...

    As POTUS Obama put it in his press conference...many people are wary...they do not necessarily like the current situation but it is better than the devil I don't know...and the devil you are describing is even worse...

    Obama - Change I still believe in
