Health Care Inflation

For anyone who seriously believes Obamacare will somehow “bend the cost curve” should take a look at this post by David Boaz. The inflation associated with sectors where government is a major purchaser of a service far outpaces the inflation in the economy as a whole.

Boaz provides a line graph to prove the point. Should we seriously expect this inflation to suddenly be reined in now that the federal government will become even MORE involved in the health care sector?
