Another Republican Capitulation on Health Care: New at Reason

Gage Skidmore / Flickr.comGage Skidmore / Flickr.comRepublicans have established a clear pattern on health care. First, they rail against whatever big-government scheme Democrats propose. Then, after a half-hearted and incompetent effort to convince the public of the benefits of a market-oriented system, they abandon their principles and adopt the big-government idea as their own in order to win or hold power.

The latest example of this, writes Veronique de Rugy, is the recent announcement of the Trump administration that it would base Medicare Part B reimbursements on what other countries pay for those drugs.
