Skip to comments.Bobby Jindal, with an eye on 2016, to unveil plan to replace Obama health-care law

Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal announced a plan to repeal and replace President Obamas health-care law, an effort by the Republican to insert himself into the increasingly competitive early maneuvering for his partys presidential nomination.
Jindal, a former state and federal health official, said his plan is one of many policy proposals he will release in coming months, making clear that he wants to be seen as a policy-driven problem solver.
In his 26-page plan, Jindal lays out a lengthy critique of the health law which he refers to throughout as Obamacare and reiterates his belief that it needs to be entirely done away with. In its place, he sets forth a bevy of ideas that have run through conservative thought for years, in some cases renaming them and in other cases suggesting new variations on old themes.
There is a void out there, Jindal said in an interview. Consider this plan open-source code for Republicans, who are welcome to cut and paste from it.
Jindals move comes at a particularly active time among potential Republican candidates. Over the weekend, Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, former Florida governor Jeb Bush and Ohio Gov. John Kasich spoke before a roomful of top party donors at a Las Vegas event hosted by casino magnate Sheldon Adelson.

how about just repeal all the ROOMs FULL of laws democrats have added in the past 100 years and just leave the constitution?
Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker
He is my one and only choice for 2016. We need him badly.
I like Mr. Jindal .I like him a lot!
Whether he is “presidential timber” or not remains to be seen.
RE: Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, He is my one and only choice for 2016. We need him badly.
What’s his stance on illegals?
I like him too. He is willing to put in the work, not simply show up for photo-ops. Electable? who knows. Helpful? Absolutely.
Since the states have never delegated to the federal government, via the Constitution, the specific power to regulate, tax and spend for public healthcare purposes, the first step in his healthcare plan will be the following. He will uphold his oath to protect and defend the Constitution by working with state and federal lawmakers to propose a required healthcare amendment to the Constitution to the states for ratification, right?
Well, he's certainly proven to be a good leader, IMHO.
When a Democrat says Republicans have no solutions, they really mean, “Republicans have no (BIG GOVERNMENT) solutions.”
AFAIK, he couldn’t be any worse than what we have now ...
Yeh replace it with some other mandatory program. LOL!!!
Jindal is exceptional. I saw him speak at the Michigan Republican Leadership Conference on Mackinac Island back in September last year. He clearly shows more depth on issues versus Rand Paul. Jindal will be a force in the next Presidential election. If he does not receive the nomination, he will end up being interior secretary or sec of education. I cannot wait til 2016
