Universal health care: Look at Switzerland

Implementing universal health care without cost controls is a recipe for disaster:

What can be done? The Swiss are still trying to figure that out. But Dreifuss said more managed care is one possibility, as well as setting up a government system to pay for the largest healthcare costs. The latter suggestion, called reinsurance, has also been floated here, but rejected so far on both sides of the ocean.

The solution suggested, rationing more managed care, was rejected by the American public. Good luck selling that idea again.
