Honestly, I am glad that a financial institution like Goldman-Sachs is thinking about it this way. It's their job. To make money. So before they invest in something, they need to evaluate the money-making potential of it.

Health care is not a sustainable for-profit business, and it shouldn't be.

Health care is about the NATION. It's about helping everyone be healthy, so nobody is being an unnecessary drag on the system. It isn't a business, because a business has the wrong goals and metrics.
