I remember when I first came to Mesa in 2001, everything was booming. You couldn’t find a parking space at Wal-Mart and all the check-out lights were on and the lines were 10 shopping carts long. I just came back from my Monthly trip to Wal-Mart and was struck by how deserted and down-sized it has become.

I am outraged that the government thinks it can fix health care without spending time in the trenches. As a family doctor in Phoenix since 1974, I am convinced Washington is completely off the mark. Having zero medical experience, politicians delude themselves that they can heal a system tangled in a web of malignant complexities by blindly wrapping it in costly bureaucratic bandages.
