Quote of the Week: Do You Agree or Disagree?

From a review of The
Truth About Health Care
, by David Mechanic. The review is written by Rob Cunningham and appears in Health Affairs,
September/October 2007.

“At some point
we as a nation will have to decide whether we wish to design our health care
system primarily to satisfy those who profit form it or to protect the health
and welfare of all Americans.” Mechanic speculates that “anything is possible if the public begins to appreciate how little it gets for what
it really pays.” But even as reform begins to rise again on the political
agenda, the preponderance of the evidence in this book says that a
majority of American prefer pluralism and individual liberty to the
tedious business of working together . . .”
