In a Wall Street Journal op-ed, the CEO of Eli Lilly argues against the public insurance option:
On the contrary, without new, more effective medicines -- along with new devices and diagnostic tools, and better treatments and surgical techniques -- it will be impossible for larger numbers of Americans to obtain better health care at a manageable cost. So it is vital to all of us that we insist that reform proposals pass the "innovation test." Providing insurance to millions of Americans through a government-run plan would fail the test.
Does increasing access to health insurance via a public plan hamper medical innovation??
