In Namibia, reflecting on health care back in the United States

I am currently in Namibia for a brief visit. While overseas, I often reflect on life back in the US. Having Internet access helps. I just read Elisabeth Rosenthal’s fine article, As Hospital Prices Soar, a Stitch Tops $500, a part of her series, “Paying Till it Hurts.” The article is astonishing. From my vantage point here in Namibia, it’s clear that the US health care system is broken. What will it take for Americans to wake up and fix it?
