Stossel gets that market based solutions on health care would work. Unfortunately, many Republicans are in favor of medical care restrictions (red tape of equipment, drugs, and making it difficult to open a medical facility). These restrictions do benefit the status quo -- and they "protect" the consumers.

I'm scared.

I fear that even if the Supreme Court overrules most of Obamacare (or did already, by the time you read this), Republicans will join Democrats in restoring "good" parts of the law, like the requirement that insurance companies cover kids up to age 26 and every American with a pre-existing condition.

Those parts of Obamacare are popular. People like getting what they think is free stuff. But requiring coverage to age 26 makes policies cost more.

Even Bill O'Reilly lectures me that government should ban discrimination against those with pre-existing conditions. Most Americans agree with him. Who likes...
