Just Say "NO" To Republican Alternative To Obamacare!

The Republicans' "American Healthcare Reform Act" (HB 3121) as an alternative to the Affordable Care Act (ACA, Obamacare) is simply wrong-headed, and not insignificantly narcissistic. Sure, the Democrats plan is awful, but what confidence do we have that a Republican plan will be that much better? Government health care is government health care, and we should not tolerate government ownership of health care by either party. This plan is no more constitutional than the ACA. The only thing that true conservatives and constitutionalists should support is the proper role of government involvement in health care, which is to regulate and legislate against fraud and other abuses, not to set price controls, determine how private insurance companies run their business, decide which products will be offered, and profit from the whole system through illegal side deals and unconstitutional, unreasonable taxation. One last time: I DON’T WANT A “DEMOCRAT” OR A “REPUBLICAN” HEALTH CARE LAW. I WANT GOVERNMENT TO STAY THE HELL OUT OF MY HEALTH CARE DECISIONS, MY INSURANCE PURCHASES, MY RELATIONSHIP WITH MY DOCTOR, MY WALLET AND MY FREEDOM AS GUARANTEED BY THE CONSTITUTION! Regulating the insurance industry is one thing; running it by government fiat is something entirely different, and entirely wrong.
