America Should Model Its Health Care Market After Pet Care

If we had a free market in health care, you could expect to see prices for full blown cancer treatment, including radiation and chemo, for less than $10,000. How do I know this? Because that’s what it costs to treat your dog. Veterinary care, while still heavily regulated by the commissars of the state, is still essentially a…
