The Real Case For Werewolf Doctors
I greatly enjoyed Ezra's appearance on the Colbert Report, but I think he has the wrong idea about how werewolf doctors lower medical costs. It's not about mauling patients! They'll spend most of the month doing good medical work like everyone else, but on a few special nights they'll eat colleagues who drive up national health care costs by doing worthless tests and prescribing unnecessary medications promoted by Big Pharma. Werewolf doctors are the way a fee-for-service system gets the incentives right.
