This blog started out as a companion piece to my book, Musings from the Christian Left (excerpts of which can be found in the July 2004 link) and to support a planned radio show. Now, its simply a long term writing project from a Christian Left Libertarian perspective (meaning I often argue for liberty within the (Catholic) Church, rather than liberty because the church takes care of a conservative view of morality.

Medicare & The Society We Want | National Catholic Reporter

Medicare & The Society We Want | National Catholic Reporter by MSW.  MGB: Funding birth care is not enough.  We must fund children until they are 20 and then hire them.  Take the financial pressure away from having children and the demographics may just be solved (or it may not - depending on whether women can accept the idea of men being primary parents and losing out on their careers as women used to).  The other problem is not cost control, it is price control.  Costs are already cut - and the industry is immensely profitable.  Until we regulate some aspects of medicine like a public utility (or go to single payer, which would do that), prices will continue to rise.
