Great Blog about Mike

Discusses one point that sets Huckabee apart from most candidates. He believes the health care problem in our country is a symptom of our health problem. That is, we spend way too much treating chronic diseases instead of preventing the disease in the first place. The following is quoted from Mike Huckabee’s official campaign site:

The health care system in this country is irrevocably broken, in part because it is only a “health care” system, not a “health” system. We don’t need universal health care mandated by federal edict or funded through ever-higher taxes. We do need to get serious about preventive health care instead of chasing more and more dollars to treat chronic disease, which currently gobbles up 80% of our health care costs, and yet is often avoidable. The result is that we’ll be able to deliver better care where and when it’s needed.

My wife and I both work in the non-profit industry and often deal with health care issues. We couldn’t agree more.
