A rational approach dictates that we look at the health conditions of the 5% who use 50% of health care dollars with the goal of ameliorating or eliminating them. Diabetes, asthma, heart disease represent a large share of this 5% groups health care costs.  Why not target preventative and research efforts to substantially reduce the health problems of these citizens and, as a result, reduce the costs.  Cutting the 50% costs for 5% of the population to 5% is a reasonable target to start.

Putting citizens first is a foreign concept to our rulers, all of them. Taking care of people first to achieve a budget benefit, a huge budget benefit, is apparently beyond their pay grade.  That makes sense when you consider who is paying them, the unreformed Social Darwinists who forget that they win every game because they write the rules, select the umpires, and control the news.
