I oppose nationalizing the medical industry. Washington DC and the medical industry lobbies work against families and raise premiums and deductibles year after year. The key feature of any medical marketplace is that buyers and sellers look for good services at reasonable price. A single payer bureaucracy does not respect consumer choice and it violates patient privacy. Politicians should not have access to a medical surveillance system to pick winners. Protected profiteers can be eliminated by changing our patent and drug approval system and opening competition for physicians.
