Stand with Rand on Health Care

Rand Paul rolling out new health care plan this week

Those who support Obamacare criticize the Republicans because they don’t have a replacement plan. Senator Paul has a replacement plan ready to go and will be introducing it this week. He also says he has the backing of President-Elect Donald Trump.

Rand’s plan is based on Freedom:

  1. The freedom to choose inexpensive insurance free of government dictates. (Obamacare mandates make insurance too expensive for a lot of people the law is supposed to help)
  2. The freedom to save unlimited amounts in a health savings account. (These savings accounts are not taxed.)
  3. The freedom to buy insurance across state lines. (It makes no sense that a plan bought in New Jersey should cost much more than a plan bought in South Carolina.)
  4. The freedom for all individuals to join together in voluntary associations to gain the leverage of being part of a large insurance pool. (Thus eliminating the problem that many states refused to participate in Obamacare and didn’t create their own health care exchanges.)

I checked Congress.gov website but don’t see the actual bill posted yet. I’ll update this post when it’s there.

The United States presidential election of 2016 featured a contest between Democrat Hillary Clinton and her Republican opponent, Donald Trump, as well as Gary Johnson, who ran as a Libertarian. Trump, aided by the ISIS crisis and a stagnant economy at home, won the election in a landslide. Clinton, after defeating Bernie Sanders for the Democratic nomination, attacked Trump as a dangerous right-wing radical. For his part, Trump, the real estate magnate and reality TV star, repeatedly ridiculed Clinton, and won a decisive victory; in the simultaneous Congressional elections, Republicans widened control of the United States Senate. This election marked the beginning of what is popularly called the “Populist Revolution.”
