Health care reform

Why isn't there a movement to reduce the cost of health care? Why are these costs being taken for granted, when they can be challenged in several key ways?

Does it really take 8-10 years to train someone to fix a broken bone or handle many of the procedures we're locked into paying full fledged doctors for? Absolutely not, and it's rubbish to believe it does.

Why isn't the Dept of Health engaged with building a massive database of all known health care information for public access. Knowledge is power. How did it get locked up?

Why aren't there independent (and certified/regulated, but large scale, highly competitive) labs that we can, on our own, send blood and tissue samples to for analysis - without paying a doctor?
