Insurance, at least today's insurance is the problem, no matter who pays. Here's my simple cheap prescription to dramatically decrease the cost and increase access to medical care: (1) permit pharmacists to prescribe legal medications and labs to prescribe tests. Less Doctor/Gatekeeper. (2) forbid direct payments from insurance companies (including medicare/medicaid) to medical service suppliers. (3) make medical malpractice a crime like assault with a similar burden of proof, but forbid civil actions entirely - no law suits with monetary damages. (4) make individuals the sole legal custodians for their own medical records. Care providers may not maintain records for anyone they have not treated in 6 months.

Just about every Republican candidate for office in the country is an unabashed opponent of ObamaCare. But if they get rid of the Democrat's health reform law, what would they replace it with?

Some critics claim that the GOP only knows what it's against when it comes to health policy. They have no positive agenda for solving the problems of rising costs, inadequate quality and, for many, lack of access to care.

But the critics are wrong. There is a Republican health plan. And it's even more radical and more progressive than ObamaCare! What is it? It's the health reform...
