Mr.Newt has a very good view on what needs to be done with the health care system, and for at least a year has been pushing for the right solutions: portability, medical savings accounts plus high-deductable insurance, cross-state buying of insurance policies, tort reform. Please go to his web site, and find out what he has been pushing for. I’ve heard his position at many interviews, and his position is right in line with that of most of us here at FR.
What you, and Newt are talking about is finding a way to finance/pay for a system that’s prices are driven by government spending( try competing as a customer against that ), rent seeking, lobbyists, forced mandates on nearly everyone involved.
Doesn’t matter what, or how it is financed, paid, or insured. With so much anti-free market, anti-free labor, anti-free customer purchase costs will as they are, outstrip the general 2 percent growth in wealth .
Newt is for a good water based vinyl Spackle on the rotted political/economic framework that is collapsing under it’s own self made contradictions.
I frankly don’t care about his views on healthcare, because he’s jumped ship on too many vital issues; GW and this particular race for instance.
I refuse to listen further to those who promote ‘moderate’ (aka liberal) candidates and RINOS over true conservatives.
