The Virginia Republican senatorial candidate is advancing an alternative to Obamacare that would save $1 trillion, give Americans far more freedom of choice, and finally end the unfairness in the tax code for everyone who buys health insurance on their own.
The Washington Post’s attack on a conservative alternative to Obamacare confirms that two core contentions of Obamacare’s supporters—conservatives don’t have an alternative, and the debate is over—are false.
With a conservative alternative in play, three-fifths of Americans are ready to scrap Obamacare—but is the Republican Party listening to them?
Under a winning alternative, costs would drop, liberty would be secured, and any American who wants to buy health insurance would be able to do so.
Liberals claim this election isn’t about Obamacare, but Republican ad buys in Senate races this October say otherwise—as the GOP is running far more anti-Obamacare ads than ads on jobs, spending, taxes, international affairs, energy, immigration, or anything else.
To force the hand of those Republican politicians who aren’t really committed to repealing Obamacare, it’s time for conservatives to “take a stand not just against ObamaCare, but for a sound conservative alternative.”
Democrats’ most common proposal for “fixing” Obamacare—adding a copper plan to the existing government-allowed metals—is a tiny cosmetic change that might even make Obamacare worse.
The Obama administration’s response to the Ebola threat seems to be driven as much by its immigration ideology as by its concern for protecting Americans.
In March 2010, the CBO projected that, by 2014, Obamacare would increase the number of people with insurance by 19 million, but a Heritage Foundation study finds there are only 8.5 million newly insured—71 percent of whom have been dumped into Medicaid.
