There are a couple of big differences between the heath and food markets. It’s pretty simple. Everyone already participates in food; that’s why apples are relatively cheap. One cannot opt out. Not even inmates, as there are already legal precedents for this. If a supermarket chain decided to charge 100 bucks for a unit of broccoli, the government would be required to step in, just as they would with wheat.
If a hospital decided to charge ten dollars for a heart transplant, yet again, someone would cry foul.
Come on. This ain’t rocket science.
