that is such an obtuse comment. there is a difference between healthcare and heath insurance. the policy of government mandated health insurance is definitely a fire that needs to be put out. but it doesn't solve the problem of healthcare fire that has been raging long before obamacare.
i think the more prudent path to healthcare reform is recognizing that health care insurance is not the same as healthcare. Insurance as a whole is a gamblers market place. Everyone is going to get sick, everyone is going to have a terminal illness. There is not a pool of money big enough in the world to cover the expense of keeping everyone alive as long as possible.
The sooner we realize that, the sooner we'll put more focus on quality and affordable healthcare. Insurance is not the answer.
Rand Paul's plan recognizes this. You can't replace healthcare with nothing.
