No Tree Grows to the Sky

The projected share of GDP dedicated to health care costs in the outyears are absurd.  Half the economy won't be health care.  Yves is a little hysterical, but the point is sound.

That doesn't mean things will be good. If the skimmers (™Atrios)aren't cut out, then it'll mean even worse health care in the US.  But it won't be 40% of GDP.

So, you know, it's a good time to call your elected officials. Because this is an excuse, not a reason for dismantling our social insurance programs.
