To: what's up
"Pres. Bush is trying here to turn health care over to the free market. Far from socialism."
In our market system, people make their purchase decisions (how much to buy) based on the cost of the item being purchased.
However, our government, though tax laws, set up a system where people health care for free without having to make any decision on the cost of using it. That leads to people using too much healthcare, which drives up the cost of health care. Our free market is not working correctly with health care because government tax laws (and state laws which set minimum insurance standards that are way too high) have taken the price decision from the user of health care. When people have to make a decision about whether to go to the doctor (for smaller things) because of cost, our system will start working properly again and health care costs will go down because people will stop wasting it and using too much of it.

Kind of like how when people conserve electricity, the electric companies raise rates to maintain profits.
