Health-Care Costs

Ticker makes a point which is noteworthy:

...Private insurance costs have risen by some 9% annually for the last 30 years.  The Federal Government's spending has tracked this rate of expansion as well, which means that the commonly-held claim that this is all about "more elderly people on the government tit" is false; the working population is roughly constant in age.

The rest of his post is an endorsement of Ryan's plan (except that, to Ticker, Ryan's plan is too little by far...)
