Deregulated Health Care:Thalidomide and Meningitis

Before drinking the Jim Jones kool-aid of deregulation you might want to check out the following links:

Thalidomide

Recent epidemic of Meningitis

Medicynical Note:  Yes there are adverse consequences of no regulation (or inadequate regulation).  This should not be a surprise after the S&L debacle of the 80’s, Enron, and the financial meltdown of 2007-8 and so on.  But still politicians persist in their fable of the virtues of deregulated “free” markets.

At this point  to claim that deregulation is a positive is a little like claiming that evolution is a lie from the “pit of hell.”  They are both examples of ignorant exceptionalism that the world views with disbelief.

FYI congressman Broun from Georgia, who made the above comment, is on one of the science subcommittees #$%!ing unbelievable.
