What Could Be The Republican Alternative To ObamaCare?

November 16th, 2014

democratrepublican

By Bill Rusteberg

With the mid-term elections of 2014 there will be new impetus towards improving ObamaCare by the new Republican majority in Congress.

ObamaCare is simply not working well.

What are the alternatives? These may be  the Republican’s answer to fixing ObamaCare:

1. Maintain some  provisions such as prohibition of pre-existing condition clauses, guaranteed renewability, portability.

2. Removal of coercive aspects of ObamaCare, i.e. the employer and individual mandate

3. Creation of a national re-insurance pool (Medicare?)  for catastrophic claims to protect carriers and self-funded groups

4. Allow insurers to structure benefits at will thus removing the “one shoe fits all” approach under ObamaCare

5. Provide tax credits to the “poor.”

FOR THE DEMOCRATS :   Items 1, 3 and 5 should appeal to Democrats. Number One maintains certain ObamaCare mandates, Number two allows for an expansion of Medicare and Number 3 continues the expansion of the American welfare state.

FOR THE REPUBLICANS :   Items 2 and 4 appeals to the Republican’s innate repulsion of big government. Items 1, 3 and 5 appeal to their desire to be re-elected.
