This should be a DP original since I wrote it but tagged it as a quick link. This was in response to a facebook post one of my friends wrote talking about how he was so upset with Boehner and the Tea Party that he sent him a letter. I think this might make him think some more about the issues.
Health just like education is more expensive because government is right in the middle. Both are held by a monopoly of education and government funding that makes it more "affordable" to people by indiscriminately throwing money at it. What happens when their is easy access to money. Bubbles are blown prices skyrocket and less people can afford to jump on the bandwagon to ride the sweet government gravy train of easy money.
The same thing happened with housing. They wanted every American to live the "American Dream" what they ended up doing is creating an American nightmare as people started defaulting and no one could get out at the end with out loosing a significant amount of their "investment". Same thing is happening with education now.
