Some Things to Think About

•  Anytime there is a Third Party in the middle of a transaction, especially a level of government, prices go up.  Because they can.  I can get away with charging a Second Party a higher price that he/she can't afford, because the Third Party who's partially funding the purchase can get the extra money from other people.  That's what insurance companies and large employers do.           
•  One of the reasons we have HIGH cost of the sick care system is that we have HIGH usage ... because we're less healthy.  We got that way because of family and community support for bad eating and lack-of-exercise habits.  NOW, we have to create a different emphasis of family and community support.
