I find this absolutely infuriating.
"Of course they’re going to say if we stop forcing people to buy something they don’t want to buy they’re not going to buy it," Ryan said. "That’s why you have these uninsured numbers, which we all expected."
No. Just no. The drop in coverage is not because people are no longer "forced" to buy health insurance. Yes, there are some, but a much larger reason you are conveniently ignoring is because they can't afford it under your dumb plan! Millions of people are covered under the Medicaid expansion who would no longer be covered, just for a start.My comment was "The market is almost always a better solution"

I also want to say that there are cases of extreme greed in capitalism. I think that is one of the ways that humans "grind the faces of the poor" (Isaiah 3:15)
In addition, providing money or benefits to people without requiring work lowers the sights of the receivers. There is only one way out of poverty.
So many good graphs and charts here.

From a FB post by American Enterprise Institute. I can easily put all items that have increased in cost into the "caused by government intervention" category except for Food and Beverage and Child Care
