Just repeal the damn thing, keep the government out of it and let me handle my own health care.

They’ll start pushing single-payer. I’ve heard multiple (liberal) nurses I’ve spoken with saying this is the only answer.

They just don’t get it.

The only solution is to repeal and NOT replace. Let private enterprise do its thing.

RE: What is the Conservative alternative? No one will say.

Here’s one:

http://www.coburn.senate.gov/public/index.cfm/rightnow?ContentRecord_id=7ef8f0d5-bf56-4ea3-80fe-7f86765a00ca&ContentType_id=b4672ca4-3752-49c3-bffc-fd099b51c966

BURR, COBURN, HATCH UNVEIL OBAMACARE REPLACEMENT PLAN
Senate Republican Proposal Lowers Health Care Costs, Increases Access to Affordable, Quality Care Without Government-Centered Regulations, Mandates

Here’s another:

http://www.redstate.com/2014/04/02/yes-theres-republican-health-care-plan-bobby-jindals-plan/

Yes, There’s A Republican Health Care Plan: Bobby Jindal’s Plan

What the GOP needs to do is COALESCE around a plan and present it as a UNIFIED proposal to America ( much like Newt Ginrich’s CONTRACT WITH AMERICA in 1994 ).

THAT would be replacement.

If you want a pure private enterprise system, you have to replace MEDICAID.

Why replace? The healthcare industry, while not perfect, was certainly much better before the kenyan decided to "fix" it. Which reminds me - we need to repeal 0bama along with his 'care'.

Well, that itself is a REPLACEMENT.

If you want to keep government out of it, you have to do away with MEDICAID. How is that not a replacement?

RE: Why replace?

Don’t we want healthcare to be REALLY affordable for more people?

It wasn’t under the pre-Obamacare status quo.

I don’t think you can win this election by simply saying we want to go back to the way things were pre-Obamacare.

Precisely! There should no talk of “replace” in any area. Simply repeal and allow the free market to adjust.

The real problem we have seen is the increase of “customers” that —on entry to the healthcare market— cannot afford the costs (can you say illegal immigrants?). That is what overwhelmed the system and turned our Dhimmicrat-run government into “concern trolls”.

At some point, the individual can make a conscious decision to take advantage of the medical market place (or not). Cripes, G. Washington lived until 67 years-old, if he had the opportunity to access medical technology that would have added 5 more years to his life, he damn-sure would have paid for it out of his own pocket (my grandchildren are worth every penny I pay for health-care!)

Currently, our government champions “choice” yet routinely denies it in the marketplace.

The free market is a bad idea? I don’t think so.

The Democrats have Obamacare and the VA as their examples of government run health care. People want to make their own decisions and should be given the opportunity. There has never been a better time to run on a liberty-based platform in my opinion.

So the Conservative idea is a heavy government subsidies, mandatory insurance coverage, no exclusions for pre-existing conditions, and keeping kids on their parents’ insurance through age 25.

Why does that sound vaguely familiar?
