Look the insurance, drug companies, and health care providers have too much money to spend on lobbying and advertisement to get anything passed. I mean we can't even regulate that what they say is in supplements is actually in them because of this power and that is nothing to all those.
We passed the event horizon to regulating and having a sensible system years ago, we just have to ride this out destroying the country before we can do anything about it.
