    That money could be put in health savings accounts by the young and healthy.

    Bush accomplished NOTHING. "Obamacare" is the law. Why not work with the democrats to improve it rather than going back to nothing?

    I would prefer that. We have catastrophic insurance, but pay out of pocket for everything else.

    Our medical bills are relatively low, but being allowed to keep more or our own money to put toward them would be great.

    Rand Paul had a brilliant five point plan to reform health insurance using the invisible hand of the free market. I posted it several times during the election, but can't find it now. If I find it, I'll post it for you.

    Dr Ben Carson has recommended Health Savings Accounts. If my memory is correct there were a couple of years in the 80's when one could set aside a certain dollar amount for a Health Saving Account that was tax free. However if it were not all spent it was lost!

    The only way health care costs will be controlled is if people, as Dr Carson says "have some skin in the game" that is have to bear some of the cost. Thet will reduce unnecessary visits and control costs.

    Obamacare is a disaster, Obama is a disaster and a wannabe dictator, the democrat party is a disaster, and only the brain dead would try to justify anything these Marxist do!
