I strongly encourage everyone to read E. Michael Dugan’s article, Twin Tiers Perspective:  In the U.S., healthcare is serious business, (April 19, 2009).  It will make you stand up and cheer.  He provides a great discussion regarding David Cay Johnston’s book, Free Lunch.  “No other modern country regards healthcare as an insurance business.”  As a physician on the front line, I know this to be true.  The “business” of healthcare has failed the American people.  There is no healing in our present system.

America, we can do better and we must do better.  Please tell our elected officials to put the “care” back in healthcare.
