Ep. 481 How Capitalism Can Fix Health Care

My general perspective is that the government is making health care artificially expensive, and so people “need” health insurance.

An important thing to realize is that the ACA situation was not stable. I.e. it’s not simply that libertarians are whining about “stealing from rich people” but hey, Jimmy Kimmel’s kid could get treated. That system was collapsing and the Republicans ironically did Obama a favor by tweaking it, so now the problems will be blamed on them.
