new poll from West Health and Gallup paints a grim picture of health care in the United States. Among the survey’s most striking findings is that three-quarters of the country grades the cost of care at either a D or an F.

Critics of our nation’s market-based health system are sure to see these survey findings as evidence that the status quo is broken. But what person wouldn’t want to pay less for health care  or any other good or service they desire?

By and large, the American system does a fairly good job of making timely, high-quality care available to those who need it  which is more than can be said for single-payer systems abroad that progressives champion as models of cost control.
