Health Management for -- no, BY idiots  
Socialized medicine is inherently evil! We can't have that! Hey, I know -- let's require everyone to have private health insurance! It'll be great! We'll embed a for-profit enterprise in the middle of an essential service, inherently driving up costs! And everyone will have different coverage! And employer-sponsored coverage is the best way we can do that! And if the employer is a hospital, why, that's even better! We can force people to jump through completely stupid hoops, like making someone who lives one mile from one hospital drive fifty miles to the ER of a different one (while in crippling pain) because the first one isn't owned by the same company! What a fantastic idea!

(No, not me. Someone I care for deeply, though.)

Stupid. Profoundly, moronically stupid.
