Ethicist: U.S. Health Care System "Dysfunctional"

From the Times Leader:

CHICAGO — The U.S. health care system is “a dysfunctional mess” and politicians who insist otherwise look ignorant, according to a medical journal essay by a prominent ethicist at the National Institutes of Health.

“If a politician declares that the United States has the best health care system in the world today, he or she looks clueless rather than patriotic or authoritative,” Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel wrote in the Journal of the American Medical Association.

Quod Erat Demonstrandum.
