As everyone knows, the health care reform process is in full swing in Washington — and the fur is flying over just how to do it. The biggest deviation from the norm that we keep hearing is the Public Option. Unfortunately, as with most government concept programs, there are a dozen different ways to describe just what this will actually look like. I’m not going to delve into this here, but in a nutshell, it’s CONFUSING. But that’s not the only option on the table, and it’s not the best option either.
We hear alot of talk about how wonderful France’s health care system is (#1 ranked in 2000 by the World Health Organization). Would something like their system be better here? Maybe. But, it does tend to go against the grain of our American culture.
