    I was just reading about their new alternative to Obamacare, the American Health Care Reform Act.

    The site features a vague and predictable laundry list of conservative goals, but it's worth staying for the video. Delusional angry white people with an affinity for green backgrounds.

    Obamacare is a train-wreck full of broken promises that is increasing health care costs and interfering with the doctor patient relationship. Obamacare must be stopped. We recently sat down with Americans from across the country to ask their opinions of Obamacare and how it is affecting them in the workplace.

    There is a better way to the one-size-fits-all approach of Obamacare. That is why the Republican Study Committee (RSC) isproud to bring forward a pragmatic, practical, and portable free-market alternative to the current health care system without the unworkable taxes and mandates forced on American families through the President’s health care law.

    •  They want a "free market alternative" (8+ / 0-)

      But that's what we've had, and it's hell.

        In a totally free market, companies (and farmers, and nuke plants, and banks) that did badly would go out of business. That's not acceptable. Companies, banks, nuke plants, and pseudo-farmers must be propped up with gazillions of dollars in federal grants, subsidies, and tax cuts. They're too big -- and too well-connected and lobbied -- to fail.

        If it were a truly free market, I would be allowed to buy into either Medicare or the Federal employees' health plan. But no, those were carefully carved out and limited to a few categories of people, so the rest of us would be forced into the private insurance market.
