When the cost of something continues to rise, and the quality of that same something continues to decline, there are coercive forces at hand, for this situation violates the Law of Supply and Demand.
The purpose of government is to safeguard rights, and one of those is the right to engage in economic activity upon a level playing field -- that monopolies will be restricted or eliminated by the government, so that all business has a chance at the market.
If this were the case, medical costs would decrease and the quality of care would increase -- but exactly the opposite is happening.
Health Insurance has had a special dispensation by the Federal Government for many years, resulting in expensive and ineffective health care.
Certainly everyone is entitled to get good healthcare at a reasonable price. The insurance companies, becoming the sole source of healthcare as the government looks the other way, is a recipe for disaster.
What system would give the most people the best coverage for the cheapest cost? Isn't that what everyone would want? It will never come from coercive insurance businesses, or the government. To think that it magically will is to further invite disaster. Government-sanctioned healthcare is not the solution. Government-sanctioned monopoly is the problem. Whatever the government can do, a level market can do better.
