Free Market Cure is dedicated to correctly diagnosing the problems with the U.S. health care system and promoting solutions which preserve and extend individual liberty. Our central premise is that many problems in our medical system are either caused or exacerbated by government intervention - and that a strong dose of Capitalism is the cure for what ails the U.S. health care system.
No funding has been received by the principals of Free Market Cure from the health insurance industry or the health care industry for the production of this website or for the production of the films featured here.
