“It’s not like the fat sits out here easily identified and you just slice it off. It’s marbled throughout the meat.”
–Jon M. Kingsdale, executive director of the agency that administers the universal healthcare service in Massachusetts, when asked to identify and reduce costs so that the healthcare budget will fall in line.
My comment: For those preaching universal healthcare (free healthcare for everybody), there’s no such thing as a free lunch. Someone’s got to pay for it, be it the individual or the state. You can try to reduce costs, but that’s easier said than done. Great quote!
