But I guess all of that's to be expected given that there's been nothing resembling a free market in health care in America for more than a century. That has been, as they like say inside the Beltway, "off the table" for more than a century -- ever since the inception of medical licensure as a way of letting the doctors' guild use the state to artificially drive up doctors' wages and shut down their competitors.
