Readers of JT’s blog are already aware the subject of this post. But for those who are not familiar with that blog, here is a LINK to an article in the September issue of The Atlantic Online. It is written by a man named David Goldhill, who identifies himself as a Democrat and a business executive. It is a long article; over 10,000 words and it will take you some time to go through it. However, this is the most powerful and informative thing that I have seen yet on the broad subject of health care in the United States, and its institutionalized problems, that are in fact in need of reform. As the writer of the article notes though, virtually nothing that is being discussed by Congress now, comes even close to fixing the fundamental problems with our health care system.
This article stands so far and above all of the other highly partisan/politicized rhetoric, that I emphatically encourage you to read this thing carefully. My linking to it is not to suggest that I agree with all of his recommendations. But his is the first voice of reason that I have heard among all of the other conversations about this very hot topic.
Stand up and stretch, grab a cup of coffee and dig in. You will be amazed. At least I was.
