    Campaign For Liberty — Introducing the Private Option Health Care Act

    This legislation would also repeal Obamacare.

    Hmmmmm, Going to have to wait and see how far this goes with the current politicians. Could be an answer that we are looking for.

    Americans are sick of scammy tax credit schemes and deductions.

    You're not repealing Healthcare reform either. It's too little, too late for your side to be offering up lame solutions.

    We're going to have to wait for the courts to decide the legalities of some portions of the bill.

    You are not going to repeal anything..

    The GOP had a chance to establish a healthcare plan for 8 years, they chose to block all proposals

    The GOP had a chance to include key provisions in the existing Health Plan, they chose to try to block it

    What makes you think they will do anything now?

    Well obviously this is not going to pass. It's a Democratically controlled Congress, and this probably won't even make it out of committee. And of course the GOP won't get behind repealing Obamacare, because they're the same as the Democratic Party.

    If they are the same as the Democratic Party, why do they vote the opposite on every bill?

    Is this a joke? How is a fully refundable tax credit for 100% of health care expenses going to save any money, for starters? The rest of the perks, if ever allowed to pass, would deplete the Treasury down to near nothing. Has Ron Paul lost his mind, finally?
