Found a “new” blog today: Dr. Barbara Boucher tells us health care costs money, and someone has to pay for it. She asks for suggestions on how we can make it less expensive for everyone. I like the idea of being able to deduct medical expenses directly off your taxes, as that does not involve extra government bureaucracy. Also, if we could somehow be rewarded for taking care of ourselves and preventative medicine be more valued, that would reduce costs as well.
Here are some approaches to health care reform:
- Rich Karlgaard at Forbes on How to Reduce Health Care Costs
- Brookings: Health Reform Through Tax Reform
- A Mindful Approach to Health Care Reform
So how is this related to FrumeSarah’s Haveil Havalim and Me-ander’s upcoming Kosher Cooking Carnival? Start blogging, it’s good for your health!
