Susan Blumenthal, M.D (who I’ve met and like a lot) thinks that we can change the world (or at least the health care system) by studying it a little more. Then the incoming President in 2008 will have all the answers and we just have to pass the legislation. (OK she doesn’t quite say that).
I’m all for more better information on what we should do and on what’s wrong now. But I’m torn. Don’t we know the problems already? Don’t we know the solutions? And don’t we know that the health care system actors will do virtually anything to keep the status quo going?
