The author focuses on mandatory health insurance in the U.S. He states that the proposal of Arnold Schwarzenegger, governor of California, for universal health coverage in the state underscores the abysmal ignorance of many about what it takes to bring productivity and lower prices to the U.S. health care market. He believes mandatory health insurance for all would guarantee a rapid move to de facto nationalized health care. He claims that de facto nationalized health care would mean more money for less health care.
