    It's the total lack of government regulation and government involvement in US Healthcare that has exploded the costs.

    1980? Reagan. See? Connect the dots! Reagan deregulated the US Healthcare industry and exploded the costs. We need more, better and smarter government to get these costs under control. Who knows more about your health care needs, you or the government?

    We should be more like countries with a homogeneous population and no illegals...that Reagan and his awful deregulation! grrrrrrr!!

    Obama did say that he is God's Partner in matters of life and death. That might be one way to bend down the cost curve

    I'm not seeing your point. This chart shows overwhelming evidence that the health care market is dysfunctional. It shows ample evidence of artificial health care inflation. I don't see any 'evidence' to support a plan to make us all indentured servants to the insurance industry. Was there another page I missed?
