I would have ABANDONED obamacare entirely. I would have enacted insurance reform. Charge the same BASE amount for each person based on AGE only, with medicare to take over at 65. No health history could be asked.
Have rules so highest rate could only be 500% of lowest rate. Define minimum coverage and allow extras as desired by consumers in UNREGULATED market.
People would be have to show proof of insurance to utilize govt services---like to get a license, a deed, etc...
Could opt out if you could show you had assets of >$500,000.
Low income could get assistance---but strict rules---not like now. Either be in job training, go to a job bank each day, or due community work----EVERY DAY.
Divorce health care from employment and pass the money now being used by businesses to employees and owners of businesses.
This would be the Swiss system---more or less. We could get same care with 20% savings probably.
Enact cost controls on device makers and pharma---so US NO LONGER subsidized these companies in europe and asia.
NOT GONNA HAPPEN

And cut electric rates to medical offices, hospitals by 1/2.
And cut all medical supplies, drugs and equipment by 1/2.
And cut general liability ins and malpractice rates and all malpractices awards by 1/2.
And cut the massive Governmental regulation by 1/2.
Had to chirp in on this I recently formed a LLC and have 1 employee(me). The rip is I get to pay unemployment ins yet will never be "unemployed". I would have to "fire" myself, I'm sure I'd get benefits then.
Here's an article that answers the question What’s the real reason people oppose universal healthcare? The fear of helping “losers”.
After the several posts on too hot by Tea Party-types I'd have to say that the author hit the nail on the head.
Nice drivel op ad, long on wind. Not much different than most post here. :ninja:
But expected from a statist...
Here's a good article on the pros and cons of the Swiss system that I found interesting. The article is from 2006 so comparisons to the US are no longer relevant. One thing I do like about it is that all of the insurers are non-proifit. http://www.healthbeatblog.org/2007/11/herzlingers-mem/
