Quote of the Day

"By and large [health insurers] follow the rules, and those rules are stupid. The obsolete business model that has led to all this inefficiency and human suffering is centered on aggressive underwriting and risk selection. The simple thing to do is outlaw it."

— Len Nichols, Ph.D., a health economist and director of health policy at the New America Foundation, told a Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor and Pensions hearing March 24.

Well know health care economist proclaims the healthcare system "stupid" in front of Senate Committee.
