Speaking for myself and since you asked; I dont vote. The whole system you support is corrupt and no amount of voting is going to change it. Not to mention politicians like Sanders et al. have no authority, moral or otherwise to make healthcare decisions for anyone but themselves.

What regulations are you talking about, FDA? What?

It's pretty simple - other countries have highly regulated healthcare and they have much lower costs. So the source of high costs in the US cannot be due to regulations.

Totally false. Why can I buy meds/medical devices OTC and at competitive prices in other countries but cannot do so here in the US?

How many prescriptions and medical devices have you personally bought in other countries?

Pharmaceutical co's enjoy govt privlege which in turn enforces a market monopoly for its products.

Suppose there was one TV supplier, do you suppose TV's would be as inexpensive or as high quality as they are today thanks to competitive market forces?

Why does Trump think money doesn't cost anything? Is this because him and Jared borrow so much of it?

This is so true. Pharma patents are extremely valuable. As is FDA approval.
The problem with an unregulated market is in controlling drug efficacy, safety and quality, which are not cheap but very important for the patients. And then how to service the poor. Compassionate capitalism can only go so far.
