A little reason to the health care debate

Once upon a time I wrote an article for FPM called "Ten Hard Questions About the Future of the Specialty." It generated a lot of response, but most of the questions still haven't been answered.

So, having failed at a simpler task, I recently cranked out 3,000 words on the subject of "Ten Key Questions Framing the Health Care Debate." It was written at the request of an editor at Front Porch Republic, a blog dedicated to "crunchy conservatism," that form of conservatism that is also environmentalist and localist in its philosophy.

Go there if the subject interests you, and jump into the conversation. The zanies are winning the battle, and we're losing the chance to have a civil debate.
