Yes we do even though I am an MD and personally benefit greatly from all these dollars. The pentagon and their $600 hammer has nothing on medicine. Much has to do with malpractice and a ridiculous amount of defensive medicine, unrealistic patient expectations, a get the answer now without waiting attitude by doctors and patients and an appalling amount spent on people in their last weeks of life.As boomers age it will only get worse. However as the old joke goes: if we adopt a Canadian style health care system where will all the (rich) Canadians get their healthcare? People waiting weeks for MRIs and hip replacements won't go over big here. Oh well, it keeps me in good audio gear!
