That is crazy. Go to the source.

Perhaps worse: https://www.scientif...how-to-succeed/

I agree. We should all go to the source.

We all dont. And even when we do its not all the time. Thats why its important for government officials to listen to experts in the field. Because they influence the general public.

I will leave it to the professionals to determine if hes a psychopath or a sociopath. I would like to believe he has some sort of conscience and simply doesnt listen to it most of the time because its...somehow...better?...ish?...

No conscience at all? Possible. Hopefully not.

If government officials listened to health experts,
alcohol, tobacco & firearms would be banned,
obesity would be illegal & helmets mandated
for everyone in a vehicle or on a bicycle.
Attendance at spectator sports might be limited
to those with the demeanor of most golf fans.

We are good enough to beat the best teams, and bad enough to lose to the worst teams.

Tying healthcare to employment is not working out so well for us.

2108 USA healthcare total was $3.7 Trillion, 18% of GDP
Total income tax paid was $1.6 Trillion
143 million tax returns were filed in 2017.
Median household income was $63K in 2018.
Healthcare is about $26,000 per tax return.

Yeah.  It is insane how much we spend per person, especially when you compare it to countries who spend far less and get better outcomes.  We have basically chosen the most expensive and least efficient way to provide healthcare.
