Libertarians believe that healthcare prices would decrease and quality and availability of healthcare would increase if providers were freed from government meddling and control.

I agree that libertarians believe this... but as someone who has worked in the healthcare industry, both as a doctor and investor, I can tell you this is almost 100% false. Regulations are necessary.

Disagree - with less government control your insulin/scripts would be $50k/month or whatever Big Pharma thinks they can get away with ... and completely forget about being able to afford health insurance.

Disagree, huge profits are what corporations desire included in the medical field.

It would work great, if it were tried. The cheaper drugs could be imported back into the US.

That’s been disproven for about four decades.

That doesn't work for goods and services with inelastic demand.

Yeah that's kind of a no duh thing surprised 70% of people voted the other way these must be the same people that want government to give them free shit.
