It would be wiser to INCREMENTALLY cut power and funding to the DEA, FDA, EPA, Medicaid, Medicare, and ACA. Then you cut federal income taxes and
corporate tax. That alone would be an excellent primer for competition and consumer spending.
Price caps are purely subjective, and only offer the illusion of stability. As long as the FDA and DEA control who rises and falls in the drug
industy. There will be no honesty in Pharma.
Same with hosptals and private practices. They are over regulated which puts an unfair monetary burden on them, which is worked into the bill that is
submitted to the patient's insurance.
So tort reform for providers, a massive cut in Federal regulations across the board would do a tremendous amount of good.
