Certainly true.  Med school should be free and then we could pay the docs
a reasonable salary.  And if I had my druthers, I would ban all drug
advertising from TV.  And I would ban all fast food and alcohol advertising.
And make it easy to go overseas for medical treatment. All great ideas,
but none of these things will happen soon.

Not sure why you would say that.  Medicare certainly pays out a lot less
in overhead costs relative to private insurers.  But all systems fail unless
you can get the care costs under control.
