It looks increasingly likely that John McCain will be the Republican nominee in the Fall. He’s wrong on drug reimportation, but in general he’s better on health care than Romney. Michael Tanner sums it up pretty well:
He has offered the best health care reform plan of any of the candidates. While Mitt Romney has embraced the basic tenants of HillaryCare, McCain would change the tax code to equalize the treatment between employer-provided and individually-purchased health insurance.
And this is an important distinction:
This is a vital step in moving away from our employment-based health care system toward a more consumer-oriented system. And, he would allow the purchase of low-cost insurance across state lines, avoiding regulation and mandates.
This would go a long way toward curing what ails American health care. Here’s hoping he can beat Billary in the general election.
