Instead of a 1000+ page document created by 100's of lobbyists, so unwieldy that its supporters have read (like the POTUS) or understand, I offer this (simple) alternative:
Goal: Insure the uninsured.
How: Extend Medicaid
Goal: Increase competition
How: Allow insurance to be purchased beyond state lines
Goal: Decrease medical costs
How: Tort reform and make medical costs tax deductible
I think that makes a fine start. Its manageable, and lays the groundwork for additional reform down the road. Easily understood, so maybe the POTUS can quit lying about what it says (e.g. "you can keep your present plan" and "there will be no rationing") and it doesn't saddle our children with a debt they won't be able to pay off.
Raise your voice. There ARE alternatives to government takeover of health care.
