The Democratic push on health care restructuring focuses on costs and control. But there are some questions the Democrats are avoiding:
Instead of solely considering costs, shouldn’t we ask if Americans are willing to die sooner from cancer, to give up access to specialists, to be refused safer, more accurate diagnostic imaging, to lose the most accessible screening programs, and to lose their autonomy in pursuing treatments for their families? Shouldn’t we ask if Americans want to replace the most advanced and successful medical care in history with the restricted care and lower cost social programs of Europe, and insure the less than 5 percent of people who don’t buy insurance but receive care anyway?
Democrats will not answer these questions because … they have no answers.
