“Reform Health Care, but to what end?”

All too often, those who want to increase the amount of regulations and level of government in the health care sector are considered to be “reformers,” a term generally associated with improving on the flaws of a current, broken system. Several recent articles and letters appeared in the West Side edition of the Albuquerque Journal arguing on behalf of such policies. In my response to these big-government advocates, I argue that moving toward a free market in health care would represent a set of “reforms” that is far more likely to address the flaws inherent in our current system.
