Hume had me on board until he said that Republicans needed to be ready with a plan of their own.
What the hell was wrong with the health-care system already in place?
If 30 Million Americans are without coverage....set up a system to deal with them....and not compromise the best health-care system in the world.
We got to this place because health insurance was ignored by Republicans. The costs were exploding. The rules were difficult to understand, and at times didn't make sense. Even for people who worked hard, bought insurance, did the right things, a major illness would often lead to bankruptcy. The public was frustrated and afraid, and the GOP offered medicare part D.
I am for small government, but there are times government should at least try to assist. I understand that often, governmental meddling makes things worse. But, the problem was runaway, and something other than ignoring it was needed.
So, given the public's acceptance of socialism, and the problems in the health insurance world, the GOP needs to have an alternate plan, or they can sit down, shut up and watch Hillary implement single payer.
