“We are paying for the Care, not the Health.” And that’s the problem, says Elena Marks, President and CEO of Episcopal Health Foundation. In just about every poll that asks what Americans most care about when deciding who will get our vote, healthcare is at or near the top of the list. It will most certainly be a major topic during next week’s Democratic Presidential debate here in Houston. Although no one can argue that we don’t all need care to keep us healthy and able to live productive lives, howwe get there remains the source of bitter, partisan debate both inside and outside the halls of Congress.
