    there's a buddist koan about the moon and the finger.

    by focusing on "tetanus is a bad example because the reforms include tetanus" you're looking at the finger.

    the point is that "it's not what we need, but it's something" makes no sense.

    perhaps a better example would be the car that runs out of gas, and when someone shows up to help all he has is a gas container filled with water.  It's not what we need, but it's something.

    are you seeing the moon yet?

      The challenge is we need to educate, train and employ more primary care physicians. The new healthcare reform helps, but it doesn't go far enough.

      A better example would be a car runs out of gas five miles short of its destination. Someone named Congress shows up with a gas container that can get the driver halfway there. They're going to have to push the rest of the way.

      HCR got us moving. We're going to have to push the rest of the way until we get more gas from Congress or an alternative source of energy from the private sector.
