Mitt Romney’s Idea of Health Care Reform: Giving Big Insurance Whatever They Want
Willard sent me an email this morning warning of the evils of big gubmint health care — and lays out a much better plan.
Health care costs are spiraling out of control, and tens of millions of Americans can’t afford health insurance. needy. President Obama and the Democrats believe the solution to these problems is a new government insurance program that will compete with the private sector. This is a course that threatens free markets. It is wrong for America.
Reform of our health care system can be accomplished by strengthening the private insurance system, as we did in Massachusetts when I was Governor. Strip away burdensome regulations to get the cost of insurance policies down. Take some of the taxpayer money we’re now spending on free care and use it to help buy insurance for the needy.
To summarize Willard’s winning formula: less regulation plus using taxpayer money to subsidize Big Insurance = free markets = health care awesomeness.
And everyone gets a pony.
