It’s easier to lobby for rules and funding advantageous to one’s own guild and blame others for variable quality and outcomes, inequity in access among poor and disadvantaged populations, high unit costs for hospitals and prescription drugs, lack of price transparency and affordability, inattention to its carbon footprint responsible for 8.5% of U.S. greenhouse emissions, lack of adequate investment in and organization of preventive and public health services, low wages in its hourly workforce, lack of local resources for unpaid care at home workforce and others.
