Too Many Health-Care Rules and Regulations? It's Time to Shrink the Pie
Health Expenditures Consume Ever-Growing Share of Federal Budget - Continued growth in federal spending on health care will most definitely crowd out funding for defense and national security priorities.

Tobacco Deal is Not About Reducing Teen Smoking - Most politicians seem more interested in raising "new" money by passing new tobacco laws, rather than stopping teenage smoking by enforcing existing laws.
Patient Access to Alternative Treatments: Beyond the FDA: Testimony from congressional hearings on access to alternative medical treatments.
