Brethren on the left seek to protect folks from corporate exploitation....check. What runs counter to this is when they end up empowering Washington DC bureacrats (republican and/or democrat) to set the protective regulations....and invariably the regulatory process gets gummed up and derailed to protect the corporations (academics call this "capture").
With the billions and trillions tied up in health care, you can count on this happening....(one could argue it has already with special deals cut for pharma and labor...).
My question is: why don't our left of center brothers align with their libertarian cousins and advocate for the solution that we have solid evidence works....the Whole Foods solution and the Indiana solution centered around patient control and freedom....Health Savings Accounts?
The Indiana story ran Monday Mar. 1 in the WSJ...the Whole Foods story ran a few months back.
Could anyone help me understand this?
