From WBAY-TV, the ABC affiliate in Green Bay, Wisconsin on July 25:
Libertarian Party Presidential Candidate Jo Jorgensen held a rally in Wisconsin Saturday.
It was held at Leach Amphitheater in Oshkosh.
Jorgensen said with her nomination, Americans have a chance to escape the old parties and start over with something fresh.
HEALTHCARE: “We keep hearing politicians say that the free market doesn’t work. However, we haven’t had a free market in well over 100 years. So the first thing I would do would be to turn it into a free market. And I’d like to point out that the two health specialties that are most free market would be cosmetic surgery and LASIK surgery. And over the past 20 years, they have gone down dramatically in price and they’ve gone up in quality and I’d like to see that happen to the rest of the healthcare field. And also, I’d like to point out that one of our biggest problems is that health insurance isn’t really insurance at all. Insurance only pays for unexpected events, like our car insurance. And if you think about it, what if our car insurance paid for gas, oil, car washes anything like that, what we would see is we wouldn’t see gas stations competing for our prices, we wouldn’t see people trying to cut back on the number of car washes, we would just see prices going up because we would just pay a little $5 copay and go along and we’d see prices spiraling just like they have in the healthcare field.”
