The US health care system, costs the most and delivers inferior care.

Great Washington Post article.

How did we get that way? Health Insurance and now HMOs. Paul Krugman pointed out a few months ago that the reason our health care is using up so much of our nation's money and we are getting so little for it is that a great portion of the money is spent in manuevers by insurance companies to avoid paying for the very promises that they made to you when you or your company started coughing up the high amounts of dinero that you thought would be used to protect your family from medical problems and emergencies.

Abstract of New York Times article on Health Care letting families down (this article is in archives, and not related to Krugman column).

Usenet copy of Krugman's piece on the hight cost of health care in the US.
