Today’s show was on the Affordable Care Act, the costs of medical care in the U.S., Life Expectancy, Infant Mortality, and some rationale on how to pay for health care for all in this country. I discussed my recent hospital bills, and what seems like exorbitant fees for emergency room care. Discussions on these topics are always a bit dry, but the subject matter needs to be covered on the current state of medical care and costs in our country. For all of our wealth and technology, we are far from the top of the list when it comes to life expectancy and lowering infant mortality rates.
There must be a better formula for providing adequate and affordable medical care for all of our citizens, just as we do with police protection. Thanks for listening, and I’d appreciate your comments.
