Why is Healthcare so expensive? Follow the Money

Pajamas Media has published an interesting article  by Sammy Benoit on how tort reform would save huge abounts of money, the expenses that Obama says he wants reduced – that of unnecessary procedures.  In short, unimaginable amounts of money are blown on unneeded “care”  because doctors and hospitals are afraid of being sued.  They don’t want some lawyer hauling them into court, asking why long- long- long- long shot Procedure X wasn’t done.

Why can’t this horribly expensive “feature” be reformed?  This graphic answers quite a lot on it’s own :

Anyhoo, the article is a good read.)
