The cost of health care is skyrocketing. In a government report released late last week, it’s estimated that health care spending will account for 20 percent of our country’s economy by 2020. This means health care spending will grow faster than the economy.

Who is left to pay the tab? The American taxpayers. Read the Associated Press story that details the costs and what it means to the bottom line.
