Doggie Health Care

Several months ago I wrote on this site about dog health care vs. human health care. John Goodman, one of the nation’s free market health care analysts has picked up on that theme on his NCPA health blog. Check out his posting here.
As Goodman points out:
Why does the market for pet care seem to work so much better than the market for human care? Not that I pay a great deal of attention to such things, but I believe it’s fair to say that:
* No one is saying the market for pet care is “broken” or in “crisis.”
* No one is saying that the market cannot work for pet care.
* No one is calling for mandatory pet health insurance.
* No one is calling for single-payer health insurance for pets.
