Iowa Medical Students Oppose Health Care Regulation
Medical students at the University of Iowa are using their group, Medical Students for Liberty, to push for a minimally regulated health care system. Founded Oct. 28, the group is gaining members and support from members of the medical community at UI.
The group is in favor of health care reform, but thinks that the legislation being considered by Congress should be more amenable to the free market.
“It’s very important for everyone to get involved,” said founder Dustin Krutsinger, a second-year medical school student in the UI Carver College of Medicine. “We’re trying to reach out to those around us.”
The Daily Iowan, student newspaper at UI, reports that the group has four core principles: a constitutionally limited government, free markets, sound money, and non-interventionalist foreign policy.
Health care reform has passed through the House of Representatives, and will be discussed by the Senate on Nov. 30.
