Harvard's Dean of Medicine opposes Obamacare

Dr. Jeffrey S. Flier, an endocrinologist and Dean of the Harvard Medical School, explains how much damage he thinks Obamacare will do to our health system:
In discussions with dozens of health-care leaders and economists, I find near unanimity of opinion that, whatever its shape, the final legislation that will emerge from Congress will markedly accelerate national health-care spending rather than restrain it. ....

Worse, currently proposed federal legislation would undermine any potential for real innovation in insurance and the provision of care. It would do so by overregulating the health-care system in the service of special interests such as insurance companies, hospitals, professional organizations and pharmaceutical companies, rather than the patients who should be our primary concern.
