Government should negotiate health care prices

The problem with health care is that we have a variable rate mortgage held by the drug companies, insurance companies and the rest of the health care providers. They can change interest rates with variable rates, but these guys can change the principal amount as well. That is thanks to the Republicans who refuse to let the government negotiate prices.

So don’t tell the American people Obama is trying to dismantle health care. We carry the load because every other country controls health care cost by having a single-payer system so they can negotiate prices.
