Jeffrey Anderson proposes some ideas for Obamacare phase II. Some of these are:
1. Lowering health costs by
a. allowing health insurance to be bought across state lines
b. allowing small businesses to join together in larger pools, which makes insurance more affordable
c. lower premiums for healthy lifestyles
d. limit malpractice lawsuits
e. encourage Health Savings Accounts, don’t discourage them
2. Give the same tax break to those who buy insurance not from their employers, that employers get.
3. High-risk pools, like they do for car insurance now, I think.
These are great improvements that would accomplish things that Obamacare phase I was unable to fix. And just because these ideas are offered by Republicans is no reason to hold them in contempt.
