French Health Care

An interesting article on French health care and the fiscal problems they are facing. The irony:
As Congress fights over whether America should be more like France, the French government is trying to borrow U.S. tactics.
And more irony:
Ironically, France is actually in the midst of shifting to a fee-for-service system for its state-run hospitals. The hope is that it will be easier for the government to track if the money is being spent efficiently, compared with the old system of simply giving hospitals an annual lump-sum payment.
