Time to Push the Panic Button?

This morning The Blaze carried this story: GOP Senator Admits Republicans Aren’t Working on Obamacare Replacement Plan.

There are obviously a few problems with this scenario.

The first is that for four election cycles, Republicans have been running on the campaign promise that they will repeal Obamacare and tear it out “root and branch.”  It is now apparent that maybe want many of us have suspected all along is true: those were just talking points. There was no real plan of action to actually repeal Obamacare at all.

The second is that with all the intellectual ammunition in the conservative, free market movement, not one Member has thought to create a road map for what healthcare world free of socialized medicine looks like. Really? Is this possible? We don’t need to replace Obamacare (socialized medicine) with anything but freedom in the marketplace.

Here’s our solution and it took us about 5 minutes to come up with it.

Create a marketplace where people are free to pick and choose the plan that fits them and goes with them across state lines. You have a plan you like but are moving? Totally fine.

But get government out of the healthcare business. Make insurance companies compete and in that competition, guess who wins?

The consumers.
