    In 2003 the Republican Congress passed wildly expensive Medicare Part D mostly written by Big Pharma. While the House bill was being drafted, Democrats and Republicans authored 59 sensible amendments to it. Republicans kicked out all but one.

    Among them them was one to negotiate lower drug prices and another one allowing Americans to import cheaper drugs from Canada — that would have made the legislation price effective . But Big Pharma would not hear of it and refused to allow a ceiling on drug prices.

    This is why we have $4000 single doses of chemo. And of course that legal price gouging leads to bankruptcies. Congress had the perfect oppportunity to control costs but instead allowed themselves to be controlled by Big Pharma. In 2007, the CBO announced that unless something was done, medical bankruptcies would break this country.

    That and the issue of 'asymmetries of information', one of the fundamental problems to managed in the economics of insurance and 'cherry-picking'.

    We are well aware of that fact. The problem is, evidence clearly shows (particularly in Mass., where we have had a few years to watch) that is will make this worse. Mass saw a 33% increase in healthcare related bankruptcies as a result of MassCare. The logic behind the affordable care act is flawed at best, and evidence completely annihilation its claims.
