From the New York Times:
A range of leading health-care providers joined President Barack Obama on Monday in announcing their promise to sharply reduce the growth of national health spending, a move that could ease the path toward his goal of comprehensive coverage for Americans.
The pledge, if kept, would not reduce overall health spending but merely slow its growth. Still, White House officials said the plan could save $2,500 a year for a family of four in the fifth year, and a total of $2 trillion for the country over 10 years.
This is good news but shouldn’t this savings already be happening? It seems these groups are implementing these savings so the government doesn’t regulate them. Whatever their motive, health-care needs an overhaul. We pay more than other developed countries and recieve lesser care.
