    Franken is using Switzerland's health care as a benchmark for reform. Switzerland has a population of approximately 7.5 million. Nice job boy wonder. Try again.

    It just kills me how those on the reight are insistant that other countries are so much better than us that they can do what we are incapable of.

    like 7.5 million is not a good test of this type of system?

    I have to say, he was very respectful and maintained a good discussion. Although, I completely disagree with the title of the video. They were not an "angry mob", they were also respectful. Still, I have heard most of his talking points before. He did not really explain why health care costs have increased. He just mentioned two things he thought the government could do to bring costs down: preventative care, and negotiate with pharmaceuticals. There is not enough evidence to convince me preventative care will save much at all, since the cost savings will be offset by the costs for those who never become ill. Negotiating with pharmaceuticals to bring costs down? I think the reason America is the nation's top innovator in medicial advancements is that there are greater incentives, in terms of money, for people to invest in such development. If we begin to cap what we pay for new drugs, I would think the development of new drugs would decrease.

    Every Expert in the field will tell you preventative care will bring costs down.

    All the other countries with preventative care pay way less than Americans do.

    How can you discussthis issue and not know that FACT!
