Healthcare is Not Special

Healthcare is not special or different from other types of goods and services. It doesn’t require unique laws or programs to make it more available or affordable. The most (and only) beneficial thing the government can do with regards to healthcare is to get out of the way. Repeal every law at every level which regulates, taxes, rations, subsidizes, or even attempts to define healthcare. Get the government completely out of the market and the result will be the least expensive and most accessible healthcare possible. You simply can’t improve on a free market.
