All this govt intervention in healthcare markets has done and pushed up the price and made both doctors and patients unhappy while corporations got the most out of it. It doesn't work. It distorts pricing signals and pushes the demand curve.
You understand all of this far more than I do Buc. I just don't like the principle of some people getting better healthcare than others because they make more - to me that should be a basic right.
