  • The CATO Institute has an article entitled Socialism Has Created a Humanitarian Disaster in Venezuela which discusses how "Venezuela’s accelerating economic meltdown is rapidly turning into a full-fledged humanitarian crisis."
  • This article from Generation Opportunity explains how the inability to purchase health insurance across state lines "illustrate[s] inefficiencies, miscommunications, and inaccurate pricing within the government health care system that initially seemed so promising to so many people."
  • This YouTube video from ReasonTV tells the story of "David Huntley was an Iron Man triathlete, a professor emeritus at San Diego State University, a father, and a husband. In 2013, he was diagnosed with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), more commonly known as Lou Gehrig's Disease. It's a death sentence given current science, but there are ways to combat the speed at which it progresses and the pain it causes. Before he passed away on July 4, 2015 Huntley wanted to try a promising new drug called GM604, but it hadn't been approved yet by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). So Huntley was denied access to GM604."
