    But in reality people don't shop for appendectomies.

    Have you read the posts in this thread, including the links provided? Insurance companies have provided tools for checking prices and a vast majority of people don't use them. Greenbeard cited sources explaining why health care is not actually shopped for and a great deal of the expensive stuff basically cannot be shopped for (with explanations as to why that is).

    You should read those posts.

    I've seen you do this before. "Do (x) and the price will drop by (y)%. Source: me. Explanation: Just think about it!"

    The claim that health care costs will drop by 80% if we passed a law requiring the price of health care to be readily available was plucked from thin air.

    80% with published prices and people shopping with their own money. That would be called capitalism. Look at Cuba/Florida. People can buy everything in FLorida(capitalism) and almost nothing in Cuba( socialism) Was that simple enough for you?

    Extremely simple. Too simple, really. As simple as just making stuff up. Which is what you’re doing.
