Here's the republican healthcare plan if I wrote it.

Get a Job. Buy health insurance if you want it or can afford it. If you don't want it, fine. If you can't afford, get a better or second job. End of plan. :P

It's a nice thought but can anyone really drop $15-$20k a year on health insurance?

Here's my plan. Get the government out of it. Allow competition and watch the prices fall.

The only trouble is there is a collusion between all the so called competitors they just split up the territories & policy holders & all keep their prices close. There are a lot of claims about lower this & lower that but its all just smoke & mirrors.

I don't think the govt has all that much to do with it--not with all the influence the AMA has --if you're thinking that all these Doctors are going to help us if they are given the reins,I think you're being silly--just one old guys opinion,but I'm pretty sure that when it comes to greed,the medical profession is right up there w/ lawyers

That's the system we have NOW. Look up the 1945 McCarran Ferguson Act. The are TWO government protected monopolies in this country. Major League Baseball and health insurance. Don't you ask yourself why?

All those BC/BS executives seem to be living pretty good for "non profit" agency. Everyone talks about "greedy" health insurance companies but most of them are set up as non profits! In RI, Blue Cross was chartered by the General Assembly as an ALTERNATIVE to the greedy insurance companies. Now surprise surprise, BC/BS has about a 95% market share, half the state legislators have some sort of relationship with them and state employee union contracts REQUIRE them to be the health insurance provider which means even if someone else would try selling insurance, a huge portion of the population couldn't get it it they wanted to!
