The justified reaction to the significant defects in our current health care policies is to say, “Something must be done.”  Many believe: “We have to change health care in America.” Despite the many flaws with our current policies, change itself does not guarantee improvement.  Many of the proposals which have been promoted would diminish the protection of human life and dignity and shift our health care costs and delivery to a centralized government bureaucracy. Centralization carries the risk of a loss of personal responsibility, reduction in personalized care for the sick and an expanded bureaucracy that in the end leads to higher costs.” –
