This book explodes the myths surrounding health care spending by showing that the U.S. has faced the public health challenges of AIDS, drug abuse, and teenage pregnancy with a lower rate of spending growth than most countries. The authors blame high U.S. health care costs on government spending, tax breaks for health insurance premiums, and over-regulation of the industry. They present a bold free-market plan for lowering unnecessary health care spending while retaining world-class quality and expanding access for the needy.
