    “If it spurs providers to compete, this measure is already more than worth it.”

    It is the “Feedback of Competition” that forces continuous improvements in Quality, Service, and Price in free markets. If American healthcare wasn’t so dominated by the Government Monopoly and the semi monopolies of employer paid health insurance, all healthcare would be of much better Quality, Service, and Price. As an example look a Lasik eye surgery which isn’t covered by health insurance. It went from expensive and risky hospitalization for Radial Keratotomy surgery first developed in 1974 to the high tech Lasik Laser eye surgery which is an outpatient service advertised at $299 per eye, or about the cost of a pair of designer prescription glasses. We could have had similar improvements in Quality, Service, and Price in the entire medical industry.

    Hallelujah! Common sense in government. Any word on who is probably now trying to kill this?
