Most Americans think that health care costs too much, that too
many people can't afford insurance, and that the entire system
needs to be reformed. And most Americans also don't want
government bureaucrats interfering with doctor-patient
relationships, taking away their existing health coverage, invading
their privacy, limiting their right to seek better care, or jacking
up their taxes. Can Congress address the first set of
problems without causing the second set? Senator Tom Coburn
(R-OK) - the Senate's only physician - thinks the Congress can and
believes he has the detailed legislative remedy.
