Healthcare is the current hoax being perpetrated on US voters and again, everybody is silent. There are a few Republicans in Congress who are proposing the full Repeal of Obamacare, but most in Congress are wringing their hands.
Healthcare costs are high, because the federal government has made excessive subsidies to healthcare for decades. Providers have no incentive to lower costs in this bloated system, because politicians are maintaining their silence.
Healthcare costs won’t go down until providers know that government subsidies are going to be reduced.
Our current healthcare system is built on a sand foundation that ignores the laws of economics, particularly the law of supply and demand and the establishment of the price in a free market economy. Consumers need to be able to refuse to buy because the price is too high.
Government needs to announce the plan to reduce healthcare subsidies by 5% a year over the next 20 years. Then Providers will begin to lower costs.
