I know. Let’s run a candidate that’s against doing anything about healthcare. That sounds like a winner! /s
Good idea, especially if it aint flopflips healthcare plan. SHEESH
Anti-socialists, such as myself, will NOT vote for either of Huckabee or Mitt. Your pining for Mitt violates the Law of Coalitions. You do that at your peril.
The GOP is composed of multiple factions, each with its own priorities. Unforntunately this election cycle, too many members of the various factions in our coalition are seeking their own faction’s ideal candidate, without regard to the opinions of other factions. The only result of such an attitude will be the destruction of the coalition that is the GOP.
We must unite behind a candidate that is at least acceptable to all the major factions, and who also has a reasonable chance to run an effective, winning campaign in the general election.
Yeah! We can't just have doctors and their patients making those decisions. Bring on RomneyCare.
Health care is a false premise to begin with. No one is going to refuse you at a hospital. People used to actually have savings accounts to pay for whatever else. The more the government is involved, the higher the prices are. That’s a universal truth.
|I am sure the thousands of pre-born persons who will be murdered annually for a mere $50.00 would like to dispute your claim of this being "healthcare".

Hum, I can see why you support Mitt, but not why you are on Free Republic. Give Michael Moore's fat a$$ a hug for me will ya....
Slippery slope scare tactics . With comments like that , it's no wonder you support Liberal Flip Romney .
The government is already doing lots about health care. If they stopped everything they were doing to control it, it would get much less expensive and the quality would improve, just like every product and service that operates in a free market environment. That's kind of hard for socialists to understand.
Exactly! Millions of individuals can't be trusted to act in their own best interest. Only a few elected central planners and their appointed bureaucrats can solve this problem!
First of all “nothing” is much much preferable to imposing socialized medicine.
Second of all, everyone I know has coverage and if they are really too poor and don’t have it through work, they are covered by medicade. (Another bloated beuacracy, we don’t need to supplament with another). Mitt and Hillary want to penalize us all based on this made up 47 million uninsured figure.
And third, Fred and many other conservatives advocate market based solutions that will address the underlying problems of overpriced health care. It is the govt. mandated third party payer system that has caused prices to sky rocket. Just look at those procedures that aren’t covered by insurance, the prices for things like laser eye surgery and lypo has actually went down over the last decade.
Getting the government OUT of healthcare would be the single best thing you could do to provide affordable healthcare to all.
Given the government’s track record, having the government do absolutely nothing else regarding healthcare is probably the most for which we can hope.
There is one field of medicine that has greatly expanded access, increased treatment options, and reduced costs. That is the field of Plastic Surgery and it is no accident that it is almost entirely paid for by the individuals who seek treatment. The government hasn’t had an opportunity to screw it up.
It is precisely when government got involved in health care that it became so expensive, that and our litigious society.
Sometimes, the correct answer is simply not pretending to have an answer.
I have a great idea!! Why not let everyone take care of their own health care like Mrs Dearolddad and I do.
