The Commonwealth Fund has sponsored one of Harris Interactive’s periodic surveys of health care experts and influencers (and no they didn’t ask me what I thought!).
I have yet to dig into the survey but the experts believe that the most important priority for Congress is dealing with the uninsured. So it sounds to me as if either they asked the experts what they thought ought to be the main priority of the nation regarding health care or what they hoped to be the priority of the nation. Because this nation, or at least its government, seems to have a lot of priorities in spending its money at the moment and covering the uninsured does not make the list. Unless of course you’ve really bought into the kool-aid that Association Health Plans and tax credits for those on minimum wage are going to solve the problem.
