The “Obamacare Replacement Plan” also increases transparency, which is sadly lacking in the Affordable Care Act.
And with the introduction of this bill, Senators Burr, Coburn and Hatch have offered a serious and practical proposal to replace Obamacare with something much better for the American people.
And let’s not kid ourselves, this effort by three prominent Senators serves as another purpose, as that is as political rejoinder to Obamacare in the upcoming 2014 elections.
