The issue with cutting costs in health care reform

Cut costs, cut costs, cut costs. That’s what we have been hearing lately (30 + years?) in order to effectively reform health care.

The problem is those costs are someone’s income. In a free market economy we are able to make money as we please, and as long as someone is willing to pay, services will be provided.

When we attack costs, we attack someone else’s livelihood. I know how I’d feel if someone was trying to take away some of my income (as if I had any). How would you feel?
