And how often is that?
How often can I go to the doctor and pay in cash? Well, those clinics have been expanding (originally just in a few drugstore chains, now in Walmarts and Targets among other places) so I guess... pretty often? As in people are doing it so often, it's worth expanding the operation despite it costing just as much as a standard doctor's visit and not even with a bona fide doctor?
Removing strict controls and regulations really.
Nope. The insurance companies have zero reason to change the status quo. Amusingly, you've even admitted to this before but I guess that gets pushed aside when you can cry about "the Left!"
