This discussion thread is related to the 7th chapter of my book
Raising The Bar, Restoring America's Prosperity (on Amazon). There are plenty of good points already expressed on this site, but some might find the discussion on Health Care interesting (plus, I'd love some feedback). And if you are interested in the topic on Health Care, you might also be interested in the Supplemental chapter in my book.
Note that blog page will always list days when the book is offered for free, so please take advantage of that.
For those that are interested, today I sent out emails to the 50 most profitable hospitals in the country. In the email, I reference the blog above and ask for feedback. My premise is that the most profitable hospitals in this country have a vested interest, so I definitely would like to hear what they think about the Affordable Care Act. My premise in the book is that the longer Obamacare stays, the more likely it will be that health care will be transitioned to "non profit" - and if/when that happens, it will have a hugely negative ripple effect on many other aspects of our economy. So I definitely am curious what for profit medical care providers are thinking. If there are others on this web site that have access to those in the health care industry, feel free to pass along a link to this discussion thread.
So far, feedback to my book has been extremely positive, but it is from an extremely small sample set.
