The fiscal cliff: Messages to Washington
Start with Congress
If you want health care to be cheaper along with health insurance, then repeal McCarren Ferguson Act of 1946. Go back to a single payer system. Health insurance companies are exempt from Anti-trust laws. Repeal the part of the prescription plan that doesn't allow the government to negotiate with the drug companies. Crack down on the fraud from the top down. Make marijuana legal. Treat it just like alcohol. The taxes from the that alone should clear the deficit real quick.
There are many things that can be done I am sure. But this is a good place to start. No more games. Either congress grows up or they go. Will things still cost money? Absolutely. Making our country safer whether it's the military, infrastructure, our coast lines, air, water and food will always cost. But by doing sooner than later will cost less. Prevention goes a long way. Ignorance, stupidity and greed have to stop.
