HEALTHCARE WOES….A reader passes along today’s USA Today Snapshot? for our scholarly edification. The subject of the snapshot is what CEOs think we should do about rising healthcare costs, and since he works for the Association of Trial Lawyers of America he points out that none of their suggestions are related to caps on medical malpractice suits.
True enough. I guess they’re more interested in reforms that actually work. But I want to point out something else. If you add up items #3 and #5, which are essentially the same thing, 40% of these champions of free enterprise think the answer is some kind of mandated cap on healthcare insurance costs! Can support for national healthcare from our nation’s beleaguered CEOs be far behind?
