back in what, 2010, Obama gave a speech to a joint session of Congress
In the post analysis on PBS, Califano remarked, we didn't know about MRIs and stuff like that, we never thought it would cost anything like what it is costing today

Maybe the "stuff like that" we didn't know is not so much that MRIs would first be developed for clinical use in the 1970's but that we would prove unwilling to think rationally about cost, price, and the implications of both for health technology rollout.
