new Trump rule: Hospitals must post all prices online

You'll know exactly how much a procedure will cost before you go in.

DeVos is also working on a similar rule for the Department of Education: all colleges will have to post stats on how many students graduate, what their debt is, how much they are making per year after leaving school, whether that's enough to pay off loans, and how many of them are in default.

As you can imagine, hospitals and colleges are declaring both these policies the end of the world.

This policy is essentially left-of-Center/libertarian, now watch as the MSM try to frame it as fascist.

the nice thing about republicans is they don't care about policy, they back their guy no matter what.

So if they want medicare part D for a trillion dollars in debt and government expansion, they get on board.

if they want the government in terri schiavo's death bed, they get it. 

party over politics

Transparency is anathema to market leaders, unless we're talking about everybody *else* being transparent, then that's ok and essential to the operation of a free market.

When they tried transparency in the UK, Big Pharma hated it, they were totally exposed for the profiteers that they are.
