Correct, but God forbid we should consider successful programs used by the rest of the civilized world.
"Insurance premiums, which reflect spending on medicines, doctor visits, tests and hospital stays, have climbed 213 percent since 1999 for family coverage purchased through an employer, according to the Kaiser Family Foundation, which studies health care. Wages, by comparison, have risen 60 percent, while inflation is up 44 percent."

Health care spending now accounts for more than 17 percent of the U.S. economy. In 1980 it was just half that.

Look at the ads for drugs. Does anyone think that raises prices? Look at the big pharma lobbies? Does anyone think THAT raises prices?
No one has ever seen numbers like this for healthcare. AND they will continue to rise as long as our lawmakers allow it. AND BTW, they are all in this together.

Thanks from tristanrobin and iolo
