No! No! Absolutely not!
I have spent some time looking at the various ideas from Republicans to replace Obamacare. It didn’t take much time because there isn’t much in the way of ideas and even fewer ideas of any value. Their obsession with Obamacare is clouding their common sense and judgement.
That’s too bad because a lot can be done to fix Obamacare while at the same time concentrating on fixing the health care system itself. With all its faults Obamacare did expand coverage, you can’t roll that back. You also can’t turn those without employer-based coverage loose on the insurance market and you can’t turn patients into consumers with gimmicks such as high deductible health plans and HSAs.
Here is some advice for Republican candidates. Stop listening to your ill-informed supposed base and exercise common sense with workable and practical ideas.
