Mike Fallon, M.D., is a politician who knows how to explain why ObamaCare adds $500 billion to debt
Mike Fallon, M.D., Wednesday gave the one best talks on health care economics and policy that I've heard since 1976 when I started covering health care deform. He certainly showed that he knows more about health economics and policy than any Republican who's in the U.S. House of Representatives today. More with links after the jump:
Fallon is running for Congress against Diana DeGette in Colorado's first congressional district, which is one of the safest Democratic Party seats in the country. So he's not likely to be elected on Nov. 2, but he's impressing a lot of political leaders so much that he's already a strong candidate for the U.S. Senate in a future election. This two-part clip is for people who want to understand why so many of us consider ObamaCare a disaster for the U.S. economy and patients.
