Excellent film clip, Jeff. In a way, medical costs and practices are affected by "insurance" the way our economic behavior is affected by taxes -- huge distortions result from people and organizations gaming the system when insurance/taxes are made to do more than they are suited to do.

That is a pretty good assumption Bob and that is what I got out of that clip too. I'm not sure what the answer is but certainly there needs to be better (I didn't say more Jeff ;) ) checks and balances without adding more bureaucracy.
