Let's start with what is and move on to what ought

Given the complexity and scale of America's health care it is difficult for the lay person to come to grips with the system as it is let alone make an informed judgment as to the system as it ought to be. Dr John Barrasso and Dr Tom Coburn are in the enviable position of being able to offer expert opinion on both health care and public policy as both men are MDs and United States Senators.

Senate Doctors Show: Senator John Barrasso, M.D., and Senator Tom Coburn, M.D., are seeking your questions as Congress debates health care reform. We want you to be a part of this important debate. Send us your questions and comments by e-mail, Facebook, YouTube, or Twitter. Senators Barrasso and Coburn will respond to some of them in future episodes, which air every Tuesday and Thursday at 5 pm EST.

Both men are Republicans and, obviously, this will incline them toward market based solutions. Whatever your particular political inclinations it seems to me their views merit more attention than many legislators found time to lend to a health care bill most supporters could not be bothered to read.
