Increasing health care spending, advancing technology and an aging
demographic (all at the same time) present an ‘unstainable trend’.

Can committed Christians provide an answer the two-party politicians are missing? Dr. Donald Condit says yes.

The poor and vulnerable can expect increasing difficulty
accessing medical care without significant change in our health-care
system. Well-intentioned leaders often advocate for ‘comprehensive’ or
‘universal’ reform with more government involvement in health care. Yet
this same government has a record found wanting in the defense of
vulnerable human life. Over fifty percent of medical spending is
already government funded.

Market-oriented improvements that respect principles of social
justice would contribute to a more ethical allocation of medical
resources. These would better serve the common good, rather than the
more ostensibly attractive proposals which propagate third-party
responsibility for health care.

Now how to go about that. Former HHS Secretary nominee Tom Daschle warns “Details kill”. Yeah, no kidding.
