Hello folks. So right now Trump/Ryancare is stalled. They're going to try to bring it back eventually. And the dems are going to push Sandercare. (If Obamacare was so great, why did Bernie Sanders gain so much traction in the democratic primaries essentially running to repeal and replace Obamacare?) Yes, we all know Rand has put forward his own plan. And we know it's going to be "wicked good". But how many of us have taken the time to actually read and understand it? I have not...until today. I want this thread to be about the content of the plan. Forget all of the sideshow stories about who is or is not behind it. Forget, even initially, discussions of how his plan compares to other plans. We can do that later. First we need to understand what Rand is proposing. Once we understand that, we can move to phase two which is making sure conservatives outside the liberty movement understand it, and hopefully advocate for it. Ultimately I hope Rand and Ron Paul start doing virtual town halls on the issue where Ron/Rand Paul supporters around the country can meet up at designated spots to watch live streaming video where the plan is fully explained and a plan is put into place to advocate for this plan. Right now understanding and advocating Rand Paul's healthcare plan is the most important thing liberty loving people can do. Yes it's even more important RIGHT NOW, than is auditing and ending the Federal Reserve. Why? Because Americans have short attention spans. If we "win" this battle, we can keep voters attention for our next initiative.
So...step one. Read the dang bill. Here it the summary.
Here is the actual bill.
The summary is broken into sections. Read the whole thing from top to bottom. Then let's discuss the sections. (Really, this is so important an initiative that it's worth its own subforum IMO.) When you read the whole bill, please post in this thread "I read it." Even if you read it before, if it's been more than a month since you read it, read it again please. The good thing about Rand's plan is that it is only 4 pages. Only 4 freaking pages! And it's written in plan English. (Ryan's plan says stuff like "Line 25 of page 72 of the USC section blah is stricken and is replaced by blah blah blah.")
Seriously folks. We can do this. We can get to the point where we understand #RandPaulCare well enough to advocate for and explain it to others.
