"I could not buy health insurance on my own under the Republican proposals because I have preexisting conditions" Incorrect. Read the current law. You might not like the price but you certainly can purchase healthcare insure. BTW, "insurance" covers catastrophic circumstances, not routine maintenance. Homeowner's "insurance" covers the cost of rebuilding your house if it burns down, not repainting it every five years.

No. Insurance companies can simply deny coverage to those with pre-existing conditions at any price--even if they're willing to pay higher premiums.

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...
