> Aside from the monopolies, though, the whole system is highly regulated and the government pumps money into it.  These two other factors drive up prices.  And the solution should be: remove the monopolies, the regulations, and the subsidies.*  Instead, it looks like the solution the elites want is: increase monopolization, increase regulation, and increase the subsidies.

But just about every other health system in the world has greater
government control and funding than that in the US. Shouldn't that
make them even less efficient? Or are you arguing that the efficiency
vs. government control curve has a minimum and then slopes upward
again as government control increases?
