Returning to the philosophy established with the one thousandth post published: It is time to say goodbye.
It is time to say goodbye to things which are wasteful and ineffective. But doing so without a realistic resolution is no solution to the problem at hand.
Where healthcare is concerned there are a lot of problems. So many problems exist where healthcare is concerned that trying to resolve them is almost beyond comprehension, and the only seemingly realistic solution is wholesale destruction and ruin of the healthcare system.
Healthcare starts with the individual, and does not involve mandate on the part of government at any level.
