Zombie Public Option Puts Stake In Heart of Health Care Costs?


«The Colbert Report» this week found something a little ghoulish about the resurrection of the public option just in time for Halloween, though, as I argue in this video, the public option may be necessary to kill the real monster threatening the United States: rising health care costs.

The short clip from «The Colbert Report» I use in this video comes from a segment broadcast on Comedy Central on October 29, 2009, currently available in full at http://www.colbertnation.com/the-colb…

The image of the bar graph comparing US health care spending to the spending in the other 29 member countries of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) is a public domain image available at http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia…

The original source of that graph (along with a lot of other great information) is at http://www.whitehouse.gov/assets/docu…

The images from the 2004 article in Health Affairs titled «How Does The Quality Of Care Compare In Five Countries?» come from the document available online at http://content.healthaffairs.org/cgi/…
