Fallacy #1: "The quality of health care in America is ranked lower than 36 other countries."
Fallacy #2: "Medicare and Medicaid are far more efficient and less wasteful than private insurance, spending only three percent on administrative overhead."
Fallacy #3: "Government or universities develop most new medications and then just hand them over to pharmaceutical companies to manufacture and make all the profits."
Fallacy #4: "Advertising of drugs is bad because it increases the price of medications."
Fallacy #5: "Private corporations are wasteful and bloated bureaucracies. Government-provided health care is lean and efficient."
