The next president of the United States will be one of two people: Hillary Clinton or Rudolph Giuliani. Obviously, the former wants to impose government-run health care on the country, so the latter’s new health care proposal probably constitutes our only hope of avoiding socialized medicine. Here are the main things “Hizzoner’s” plan would accomplish:
Provide an income exclusion of up to $15,000 for those without employer coverage.
Provide a health insurance credit to low-income Americans that could be coupled with other revenue sources, such as Medicaid and employer contributions.
Reform the medical liability legal system without limiting compensation for real economic loss.
Eliminate state mandates that limit coverage options, increase costs, and prevent individuals from purchasing insurance.
Streamline the FDA process so that government regulation does not delay new cures or needlessly cost lives.
Expand access to health savings accounts by simplifying current rules and regulations.
As David Hogberg points out, the Giuliani plan isn’t perfect. It does however, emphasize the free market, a feature that will serve the health care system and its patients well. And it is vastly superior to the statist solutions favored by his likely opponent in next year’s election.
Rudycare, in other words, is right for American health care and represents our only real hope of avoiding Hillarycare.
