Waste Not, Want Not
Cut through the BS from candidates and get independent information about the Health Care morass we find our selves in. Here's one plan : Reduce the copious amounts of money wasted every year on red tape and protective loopholes for insurance and pharmaceutical companies. A new report released by Jobs With Justice found that $245 billion is wasted each year through inefficient private insurance plans and laws that don't require drug companies to sell in a competitive market. So in addition to not spending more than industrialized countries, we're also wasting more—but Americans are still not getting adequate health care. It's time to end the waste .
