Painful Diagnosis on Why Health Insurance Reform is Dead

February 1, 2010

Too many people want everything for free.  That’s a big part of the problem blocking this whole notion of health insurance reform, according to business columnist Kathy Kristof.  Frankly, she makes a good point:

And yet, we consistently allow ourselves to be distracted by the trivial-the woes of someone who doesn’t think she should have to pay a modest amount more for health insurance because she’s voluntarily getting a “little adjustment” so she can “feel awesome” after she works out. – Kathy Kristof
