  •  ah, as I said it's how you use the data ;-) (0+ / 0-)

    at no time did I say 'use them to tell you what to do'.

    More like 'use them to tell you what to expect'.

    •  Agreed (can't rec your comment) by fiat (0+ / 0-)

      don't want to hijack your thread , but the situation was a fateful choice when the system was a fraction of the size(and not expected to grow out of bounds unchecked) to allow the "private sector" to manage, finance and discover solutions to all its problems directly or indirectly.

       That sixty year old model has finally reached old age and its weaknesses and shortcomings are showing. Keeping doctors away from controlling the system, allowing cost phobias and private insurers to run it and their lobbyists to be the gatekeepers of any changes has to come to an end. It won't happen without a real fight, a dirty, ugly at times fight.
      But it will be a fight, not a "inevitable" reform. No one gives up a trillion dollar golden egg laying goose without a very nasty fight.
