In every industry, free markets lead to higher quality goods and services, greater abundance and lower prices.

Government control of industries, however, creates ever-higher prices, stable-or-worsening quality, and scarcity.

U.S. life expectancy has risen steadily for decades, as market innovation has spread.

But now, advances in innovation have stalled as government pours on the regulations.

Life expectancy is now declining, just as in some of the most backward socialist societies. See here.

As always, increased government control has led to disease, weakness, poverty and sickness.
