The “health care system” is easily fixable.
1. Stop the insane practice of trying to buy risk indemnities against the results of our own irresponsible behaviors. Health insurance encourages irresponsible behavior.
2. Local government provides emergency services and community education and fitness centers.
3. Hire Chiropractic Physicians as gate keepers to the health care system. Chiropractors are uniquely licensed to provide portal of entry exam and diagnostic services, but cannot prescribe drugs so are not susceptible to the pharmaceutical industry. This has already been tried to a savings of more than 50% in overall health care expenditure for Illinois Blue Cross and Blue Shield between the years of 2001 and 2006.
