But here is something else that should be of interest to all of us: why would Congress pass a law mandating free contraceptives but leave people exposed for thousands of dollars of out-of-pocket costs if they need bypass surgery? I have been trying to explain this phenomenon to people for 30 years — ever since I discovered similar anomalies in the British National Health Service.

I call it the “politics of medicine,” and it illustrates why government should always play a very limited role in health care and why individual choice and competition should be given maximum reign.
