STAT - Reporting from the frontiers of health and medicine

I do not disagree at all. How would the health insurance companies (“chatterers” #1 and #2, and more) respond to your very legitimate frustration and your objections? How would Seema Verma? How would Alex Azar? How would Milton Friedman have answered you from a free market perspective? How about, say, Doug Badger at The Heritage Foundation (from their website today: “Health care reform should be a patient-centered, market-based alternative that empowers individuals to control the dollars and decisions regarding their health care”), who is one of their resident experts on healthcare policy)? Unless and until we can anticipate and respond appropriately to the very folks who have caused our shared concerns with the ethos, logos, and pathos this problem demands, there are tens of millions of Americans who might THINK they are ‘making a choice’ but really are being nudged in one direction or another by the next TV ad or morning TV show ‘expert’. Perhaps these days, in a democracy, that illusion is sufficient?
