He got spun up by this OpEd in The Wall Street Journal, from the Dean of the Harvard Medical School, Dr Jeffrey S Flier.

In the mean time, our ability to innovate and improve will be impaired.
This will make an eventual solution even more difficult. Ultimately, our capacity to innovate and develop new therapies would suffer most of all.It isn't like I haven't noted this problem in this blog before.
I will miss the ability of the US Health Care System to innovate. I wonder if this means the inginuity and innovation that has characterized the medical community in Boston will migrate to some other location?
That is the prolem with evolution. It has wired us to seek places that allow us to move up Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs.
