Another Reason Why Healthcare Is (Sooo) Expensive In the U.S.

I have been following the Science-Based Medicine Blog for some time now, since the quality of the articles is outstanding, the topics are well researched, and the contributors are all on top of their fields of expertise.
Today, there is an interesting entry (Wyeth vs. Levine: Should Drug Label Standards Be Determined By Juries?) about a recent case heard by the US Supreme Court, and its outcome. In today's economic climate, while the new Washington Administration is paving the way to universal health care, are we still wondering why health care in this country is SOOO expensive? Call me crazy, but, as the author of the blog entry says, why are the lay people making medical decisions? Do I see "lawyers" and "$$$" all over???
