Viewpoint: Health care reform and the price of ignoring reality
Any physician failing to diagnose a patient's underlying disease, treating symptoms only, would be guilty of malpractice. Too bad, then, that politicians who want to "reform" health care, making it "affordable" cannot be sued for malpractice. Like a negligent physician, our esteemed...
