The easiest way to replace Obamacare and other federal largess.
A new law that all federal funds for Medicaid and Medicare and other such programs will be given to the states as per capita “block grants” for eligible recipients, with only recommendations, not requirements, on how that money should be spent by the states.
Limit all future federal involvement to receiving and analyzing standardized statistical information from the states that can be used to provide recommendations for efficiency.
I honestly think such block grands should be phased out over a period of 10-20 years as states can either pick up the difference or privatize the associated program.
Block grands are a good short term solution but in the long run we can’t allow our States to be depended upon Washington for money taken from us the citizen by Washington in the first place.
Washington has to be cut out of the loop or it will invariably take advantage of its control of the pipe line to comendeer control of our states from us the people again.
