A no-nonsense approach to health care, this book takes the Affordable Care Act to task and rejects Barack Obamas vision. Arguing that the United States should create a market for sick people, in which health plans vigorously compete to solve the problems of diabetics, asthmatics, heart patients, cancer patients, and others with high expected health care costs, this book maintains that every example of a center of excellence--producing high-quality, low-cost care--originated from the supply side of the market, not the demand side. With practical advice on how typical employers can cut employee health costs in half, this handbook also examines a variety of health-related topics, including malpractice, insurance reform, and the institution of a privatized Medicare program.
