Tale of Two Cities and health care

In McAllen, Texas, twice as much is spent per patient than in El Paso, Texas. To find out why, this doctor/author traveled to both towns. What he found helps explain why health-care costs are so high in this country.

In short, more spending, means greater profits. But it doesn't mean better care.

Thoughts?
