Source of Healthcare Price Increases

This chart illustrates the decline in personal responsibility for healthcare costs over the last 50 years.  Now I have to find the best source for healthcare cost increases over the same time period, but I would guess the correlation between these two factors will be quite high.  It’s what always happens when people can use “OPM” – other people’s money – to purchase anything for themselves.    Note: This chart was created by Dan Mitchell, using data obtained from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services’ national health expenditures data website and originally posted at Andrew Breitbart’s BigGovernment.com.
