More Insurance Equals Better Insurance
This is the underlying premise of health care reform, that we need to further insulate consumers from costs of their health care. I come from the opposite premise; we need to insure against catastrophe and for the most of the population leave it to them to cover predictable expenses. In every other avenue of life, we do not buy a financial product whose sole purpose is to add parties to a predictable transaction. Why should health care be different?
