“What if the doctors went out on strike?” asks the Pacific Research Institute’s John R. Graham in today’s Examiner. The question is elicited by the talk of unionizing doctors, which then raises broader issues about the U.S. health-care system.
Unionizing doctors is not the answer; giving control back to patients is. Let them choose and pay doctors without the bewildering array of bureaucratic intermediaries. The cost savings would be enormous, and doctors and patients alike would feel like they have control over their treatment.
