  •  Heavily regulated markets? (1+ / 0-)
    Recommended by:

    No No No.  You want to see regulated markets?  Study Switzerland's health care system.  They regulate the markets, the insurance companies, their profits, the health plans, the pharmacies, the device manufacturers, everything.  And the people in Switzerland still pay substantially more for their system than any other country in Europe, and their system is becoming more expensive faster than the rest of Europe.

    I fear that the same thing will happen here.  Prices will go down for consumers until there are not enough new consumers for the insurance companies.  As long as the choices for consumers are among private insurance companies with no public option, Obamacare is no permanent solution.

    "In this world of sin and sorrow there is always something to be thankful for; as for me, I rejoice that I am not a Republican." - H. L. Mencken
