Government intervention in health care markets is practical, necessary, and morally sound.
Intervention yes, running in though, absolutely not.
Many European countries have a successful implement excellent national health care system. This country is controlled by the pharmaceutical, medical supply, HMO, AMA and health insurance lobbies.
Just the opposite
That is what it should be,
Govt intervention has a history of ruining industries. Look what it did to ATT in the 80s, the automotive industry in the 70-90s, the airline industry, and energy production and transit.
The govt can step in and say that the healthcare industry's self-made rules preventing consumers from "shopping" for plans violates already-existing interstate trade rules.
Protecting your citizenry from gouging and fostering the healthy workforce that contributes directly to the GDP, YES.
As little as possible
Considering they are mostly for-profit markets & to make a profit, healthcare is usually denied, yes.
