It's always enlightening to hear Milton Friedman speak about the ability of capitalism and freedom to supply medical care to consumers at lower cost and higher quality than government. In this speech from the late 1970s (divided into 6 videos), Friedman touches on many important points: the Flexner Report, government licensing of physicians, the AMA, the FDA, and socialized medicine in the UK and Sweden.

Any health care reform or plan is vacuous unless it includes comprehensive tort reform.
People are rightfully concerned about the government getting between them and their doctor. What they don’t realize is how driven the doctors, pharma, med device manufacturers, and insurance companies are by lawyers.
Considering most politicians are themselves lawyers, I don’t hold out much hope that they will censure their own but we can hope for change can’t we?

Lawyers are the commissars of American-style Socialism.

The Law? They make it up as they go - much like good Leninists.
