Go to Canada; McCain’s “Let them eat Cake”

Amazing, I don’t have scruples about going to Canada for my medications but it is an inconvenience. That McCain won’t do anything about prices HERE is stunning.

The proposals to reward physicians for innovative care are fine but they doesn’t get to the crux of the efficiency/cost problem-the overuse of procedures and use of expensive treatments that don’t materially alter outcomes. The fact that Canada offers the same medications for a fraction of the cost is a telling indictment of our non-system of controlling costs.

We need to reevaluate technology and assure appropriate use; reward companies for right pricing of advances; penalize those who gouge customers (patients, providers and insurers); and decrease our duplicative terribly expensive administrative overhead.
