The Attitudes of Health Care Reformers

Dr. Richard Reece of  the Medinnovation blog nicely sums up the attitudes of those who designed the new health care law.

• Statistics on average population behavior are more important than individual heuristics.

• You cannot trust doctors – their training, their experience, their intuition, their motives.

• You cannot trust patients – their knowledge, their instincts, their choices, their decisions on how to spend their own money.

. You cannot trust markets, which express citizen behavior at street level.
