There is a big purple elephant standing in the corner of the US healthcare system

In simple terms, IOM stated today that US healthcare sucks.  It is about time someone addressed the elephant in the room.

"In a lengthy report out Thursday, the IOM wrote that U.S. medicine wastes roughly $750 billion per year, permits tens of thousands of needless deaths and bungles its mission in ways foreign to other industries." -The Hill's healthwatch blog commenting on the IOM report released today
