Cure or care?

WHICH DO you think is less expensive, not to mention preferable: a cure for cancer, Alzheimer’s disease and diabetes, or caring for people with these diseases? Wouldn’t it be better medical and public policy to direct more resources toward finding a cure for diseases that cost a lot to treat than to rely on a government insurance program, such as ObamaCare, which seeks mainly to help pay the bills for people after they become ill?

What a silly article. Mr. Thomas doesn't seem to want to let the facts get in the way of his story. To think that we just have to try a little harder and we will soon have the cures for what ails the human population and everyone should just wait for that to happen. Everyone needs healthcare so everyone should pay for it..period. Insurance works because of the size of the risk pool. You can't buy car insurance after you have an accident. And by the way, the Brits are having to deal with with a big problem, they expect that up to 20% of the people who are alive today will see their 100th birthday...this will put a big strain on their pension systems....seems like health is to blame for everything. What a lightweight bunch of addled thoughts....why do you pay to publish his drivel?
