The Time magazine special edition on health care, "A Bitter Pill," really explains how things work in hospitals; and it is scary! It is scary because it appears that helping sick people is a very profitable business! Top level hospital administrators are making a million or more a year - some making three to five million a year. Hospitals, even non-profit hospitals, are making hundreds of millions a year after expenses.
CNN has had several documentary programs lately where the high costs are also documented. We need to have a conversation about what these costs are doing to our economy and to health of those who can't afford it.
Watch for information about health care costs.
