The Problem With American Health Care

by Brad Warbiany

It’s very simple, and it’s something that, in many forms, I’ve discussed on many levels.

But I don’t think I’ve ever seen anyone lay it out quite as clearly and succinctly as here at Coyote Blog.

I’m not going to excerpt it, because you simply need to click over and read the whole thing.

  1. I agree. That was a clear and compelling description.

  2. Any accurate discussion of the healthcare problem must include the damaging effect of State licensing requirements for doctors. State licensing requirements for doctors artificially drive up the cost of health care. The AMA is a licensing union and cartel that, in collusion with the State, restricts the supply of medical care.

  3. I agree with FSK. Another issue is the patents on drugs and the FDA.
