Catron on the OK Doctors Video

David Catron is long-time vocal supporter of free-market health care reforms.

He also offered friendly criticisms of what he regards as factual errors in a recently-circulated video by ReasonTV, "Oklahoma Doctors vs. Obamacare".

Read Catron's post, "About That Doctors Vs. Oklahoma Video", for more details.

Catron is also careful to note:
I am not, by the way, advocating more government control over free-standing centers. I am, instead, arguing for less government control over community hospitals.
I greatly respect Dr. Smith and his colleagues for promoting price transparency and for offering high-quality medical services at lower prices.

But I also wanted to highlight some constructive criticisms of the ReasonTV video.  Such open discussion and debate should strengthen our ability to pursue our ultimate goal of free-market health reforms.
