We’ll send you a rundown of the top five stories every day

Due to government tampering, there is no market for health insurance. It's currently illegal to:

*Offer customers catastrophic-care health insurance

*Sell health insurance plans across state lines

*Give employees cash to buy plans at the same tax rate as choosing their health insurance for them


Ending the regulatory burden and tax incentives in just these three areas would:

*Give Millennials the ability to buy affordable health insurance that works for them

*Force insurerers to actually compete for customers, increasing quality while decreasing price

*End the employer/insurance link, eliminating the incentive for plans which cover routine care

Paying for routine care out of pocket instead of through insurance would allow and incentivize price shopping and competition, decreasing prices and increasing quality. It would also reduce administrative costs and overtreatment.

They want you to think this is complicated. It's really not. Let competition work.
