    American health care is the best in the world -- In many ways, American health care is cheaper than other countries -- America wastes one in every ten medical care dollars -- Most medical care dollars are spent in the last six months of life -- America consistently provides high-quality medical care -- Consumers make the best decisions about their medical care -- Preventive care saves money -- America will not ration medical care -- America faces a dangerous shortage of doctors -- The current malpractice system protects patients -- In America there is a safety net of government health programs for the poor -- People who work can afford health insurance -- The uninsured get adequate care in the emergency department -- The market can fix health care -- Doctors & hospitals should be paid separately for each service they perform -- America will never be able to reduce the cost of medical care -- When you come right down to it, Americans are like everyone else -- Previous attempts at health care reform have taught us very little -- Americans are so divided we cant even agree on goals for our health care -- There is no health care system that will work for America.
    "Despite intense political focus and debate for the past 10 years, Americans remain deeply worried about the availability and affordability of health care for themselves and their families. In clear and accessible prose, journalist Ryan Holeywell and medical doctor and health policy expert Arthur Garson provide Americans with the tools we need to have an honest, unbiased view of the state of health care policy in America. By fact checking 20 enduring health care myths they move the debate beyond Obamacare v. repeal and replace and give citizens the tools they need to evaluate the major policy issues confronting our health care system."--Publisher's website.
