2008 bent the health-care cost-increase curve downward

Excellent post on hotair.com.  Basically, the private sector was able to decrease their spending on health care during 2008.   During the same time period government programs increased spending.  Government involvement in health care has nothing but negative results which include increase spending and decreased service.

This is a circus with a very expensive admission price. 

I experienced the same result with a private insurance program.  Once we got the state out of the way, our health care rates dropped roughly 20 percent!  We were able to negotiate and shop around for re-insurance and better programs.  The drop in rates was followed by an increase in coverage.  Since the state actually pays a percentage of the members premiums, they saved money from the general fund by paying a small percentage.  All they had to do was get out of the way and let us control the program.
