This is what the GOP needs to talk about

put together a list of all these stories and use that as a basis for ‘change’ to the health care system

starting with putting the shopping around for bargains back in the consumers hands

FIRST and MOST IMPORTANT: When you go to a hospital or pharmacy you pay a PERCENTAGE, not a ‘co-pay’ (fixed amount that is the same no matter where you go). That way you can shop for the place that will minimize your costs.

SECOND- ALL insurance policies are for catastrophic illnessed only. I dont expect my car insurance to pay every time I go get my oil changed or spark plugs- even if I want my oil changed every week or 12 sets of new spark plugs per year. I want them to pay only when there is an accidetn. (companies are REQUIRED by the government to pay for all things)

THIRD- Shoot all medical malpractice lawyers... wait- did I say that out loud?

Don't shoot all of them. Doctors are very good at covering up acts of gross negligence committed by their colleagues. It's rare, but it happens.

So keep just a few medical malpractice lawyers around to keep the doctors honest.

you are exactly right.
The GOP needs to start the conversation about de-regulating healthcare. I have been on the adminstrative side for more that 35 years and the majority of the rising cost of health care are artificially driven. That and trying to buy medical supplies and equipment where the price is tripled.

Bump. I am not a doctor (I play one on TV). Remove any tax incentives for the employer concerning health care. So now the employer AND the government are out of the health business.
