the solution is in NO shape or form with this program. This plan DOES NOT address the problem. Once again the AMA, Big Pharma, hospitals, and the almighty insurance industry= the most lobbyied money in DC. It is a business and you want the govt. to head it up. I just don't understand. Look at the cash for clunkers and the thinking the govt. has. A clunker that travels 12,000 miles a year at 15 mpg uses 800 gallons of gas a year. A vehicle that travels 12,000 miles a year at 25 mpg uses 480 gallons a year. So, the average Cash for Clunkers transaction will reduce US gasoline consumption by 320 gallons per year. They claim 700,000 vehicles so that's 224 million gallons saved per year. That equates to a bit over 5 million barrels of oil. 5 million barrels is about 5 hours worth of US consumption. More importantly, 5 million barrels of oil at $70 per barrel costs about $350 million dollars So, the government paid $3 billion of our tax dollars to save $350 million. We spent $8.57 to for every dollar saved. How good a deal was that ??? They'll probably do a great job with health care though!!
