    in the first place, rather than 'fix them' after they get 'broken'?

    We want the health care spending of the country to shrink, because it's cheaper to simply keep people healthy in the first place.  Healthier people use fewer more expensive treatment services and more cheaper preventative services.

    If we address the root causes, we keep everyone healthier, which not only makes them more productive, but happier.

    Regulate pollution producers, rather than treating all of the people who get sick from the pollution, for instance.
