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.
- 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)
- The freedom to save unlimited amounts in a health savings account. (These savings accounts are not taxed.)
- 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.)
- 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.
I supported Rand when he ran for President and I continue to support his efforts to improve our country while in the Senate. Paul is one of about a dozen Members of Congress that are physicians so he has some experience in this area. He knows what it’s like to deal with the red tape in a health insurance bureaucracy.
I admire Rand because he spends a lot of his time away from Washington on missionary trips, performing eye surgery for free. He is the true definition of citizen-statesman and we need more like him. He follows in his famous father’s footsteps, Ron Paul is an obstetrician and former Member of Congress.
