Government is what makes health care expensive.

How many times have I detailed for you how much money I save not using insurance. I just go to doctor, go to hospital, negotiate the price, and walk out of there and pay for it. A lot of people can do this. You don’t have to have tons of money to be able to do this, take installment plan payments like everybody else does. But everybody’s so conditioned that they can’t get treated unless they’ve got health insurance. Everybody’s like sheep in this, can’t even have an average doctor visit without insurance. I think it is a crying shame. I think it is literally a disservice to the people of this country what’s been done, attitudinally. There is, I would say, easily a huge majority, vast majority, of people who believe that without health insurance they’re gonna die. That’s why it’s such a big deal to people.
You talk about PR campaigns and scare campaigns, people really think that they can’t go through life without a health insurance policy. Stop and think of that. Think of the prison that puts people in. When the odds are most people could go through life and only need a catastrophic insurance policy. You don’t need to go to the doctor every time something doesn’t feel right. You don’t have to go to the doctor every time you got the sniffles.
