Fear, Greed and X-Rays - by Dr. Andrew Weil

from HuffPo:

Fear and greed are potent motivators. When both of these forces push in the same direction, virtually no human being can resist. And doctors -- despite many expectations to the contrary -- are human beings.

Big money influence thwarts health reform

Who owns America? Not you and me, that’s for sure, and that’s why Americans don’t have universal health coverage.

Everybody agrees medical costs are too high, too many individuals are not covered and that the system needs to be fixed. But the people who own America don’t want real change, and they’re the ones who will tell Congress how to write the next health care bill. Here’s how it works.

Joan King writes for the Gainesville (GA) Times.
