White House

As Steven Brill's TIME Magazine article makes evident, Obamacare -- as important as it is -- doesn't address a major medical problem: the ability of hospitals and other medical institutions to overcharge to the point of bankruptcy those caught in its captive market.  It's time to regulate to take the overcharge and arbitrariness out of medical billing and save large numbers of Americans from being destroyed for the enrichment of the medical elite.  Set up a commission to examine what steps may be taken, review what options are available to executive order, and generally do what can be done to tame this greedy sector.
