Maybe you should take a peek at some recent news across the pond:
To save money, you shut things down. Don’t worry, I’m sure services won’t suffer.
Doctor’s worried about costs, because the government tells them they got to meet the budget, and patients suffer.

Want to lower health care costs? Start allowing people to purchase insurance across state lines, do away with the minimum package an insurance company has to offer. As a single male insurance covering the cost of pregnancy is of little concern. Allow people to purchase insurance with pre-tax dollars. Just a few things the government could do to help lower health care costs.
What we all can do is get some exercise, eat right, and get plenty of sleep. Since this involves personal responsibility I don’t have high hopes for it succeeding.
