Unfortunately, the policies offered thus far are misguided. As counterintuitive as it may sound, the answer to America's health care woes won't be found by harping over the price of care.
Here's the rest of the story via a new op-ed in the Baltimore Sun:
"Prevention must be health care's first line of defense, as a proper diet and healthy lifestyle can stop many diseases in their tracks.
Failing prevention, earlier diagnosis and care are crucial. There are many effective treatments and maintenance medications that can stop diseases such as hypertension and diabetes from progressing, allowing millions of Americans to lead active and productive lives without breaking the bank.
In the coming weeks, the nation will learn more about the health care plans of each of the major presidential candidates. If lawmakers want to save lives, enhance the quality of care, and reduce costs, the focus needs to shift to prevention and early diagnosis."
SiCKO? How about WeLLO.
