    The hell you say?!?!?!?

    Creating scads of new regulations, programs, mandates, and an army of new bureaucrats to impose it upon the proles, costs more than letting the market sort things out?

    Well, I'll be dipped.

    How is the repub plan different?

    Was status quo not expensive? Maybe only $18,310 for full coverage 24/7 no matter what.

    One of the repub ideas was to properly enforce the interstate commerce clause -for a change- and make medical insurance a free field of national commerce.

    Wouldn't have added one new program, bureaucracy, regulation, or anything.

    Let me see if I understand you point. The way we were doing it was expensive, so the only possible solution os to involve the government and make it more expensive. Does that some it up?

    More cost stimulates the economy, if we could convince everyone in the medical profession to be unemployed, our GDP would double
