Since the ACA has come up in so many threads lately I thought I'd ask what a functioning, "conservative" market in health care in the United States looks like? It's not clear to me from comments what such a thing would be or how it would operate.
Do we all have insurance? Do we treat it like any other market and do fee for service/good? What role (if any) does the government have to play? Is the current system just fine?
I'm genuinely interested. Thanks!
Update: Other questions: What is wrong with the current U.S. health care system, if anything? How do we move from the current system to whatever is the preferred conservative alternative?
