Steven Brill Appreciation Thread - VIDEO

This video delves into the journalist's motivation for writing his "Bitter Pill" article.
Also describes some of the reaction he's gotten. The audio is not the best, but you'll get the idea.

1. No appreciation from me.

He stated the obvious then offered no valid solution. He offers nothing new, and bring fake solution: Malpractice reform, higher copay so that people shop around. Really?

2. Well....

I give him a lot of credit for the Herculean efforts he made to find out WHY medical procedures, supplies, labwork, etc. cost so much. I learned an awful lot reading this article and completely agree with him that the Medicare eligibility age should be lowered. Brill says age 60, but should ideally be Medicare for all.
