Healthy discussions 

After Dave sent me the post just below Mr. Ortiz, I remembered a request earlier in the day from a reporter for someone who's a health policy expert. I gave Dave and Larry each other's number, and the result was this article yesterday. Dave reports only one misquote:
$150 billion is today's total subsidy (lost FICA and income tax revenue) in our entire health care system; not the additional projected subsidy projected from last year's passage of Medicare reform/prescription drug legislation.
I love good analogies as teaching tools, and Dave's piece is a good one.
