Oh vomit... The other 90% is RomneyCare.
Yeah, I support Gingrich but I don’t like this idea. We don’t need national healthcare...no matter how benign it will eventually be perverted into British style government driven bureaucracy. We need to convince Newt to leave healthcare to the open market. If I had my way I would outlaw health insurance and force doctors and hospitals to accept what people could afford to pay.
Don’t leave us in suspense NOOT!
Which 300 pages isn’t crap?
Is it the part about requiring indiviudals to purchase healthcare?
Is it Death Panels?
What is it?
Like normal, Gingrich wants a big government solution to Healthcare that he thinks he will be able to make work. Good luck trying to convince him otherwise, because, he is after all, the smartest guy in the room.
Right, from each according to their ability to each according to their need. Yep, that should work!
My great grandfather accepted what people could pay. ,
Lots of chicken was eaten in the household.
Yeah, the blank pages.
No, it’s called the free market.
Polls have been pretty clear that although Americans are very much against Obamacare, they are in favor of reforming the healthcare system.
Medicare is going bankrupt. Insurance costs keep going up. These are problems that a Republican candidate is going to have to answer. And simply saying to repeal Obamacare and replace it with nothing is a losing strategy.
And during the whole Obamacare debate, Republicans never argued against some type of reform. House Republicans even offered their own version.
Did he say that in the 300 pages we would have national healthcare? I didn’t see or hear it. There could be anything in that law that is far beyond any healthcare. Could be nothing to do with healthcare. I know I haven’t read it all. Have you? Do you for sure know which 300 pages Newt is talking about? Maybe they are blank.
And the EPA with the ESA.
You mistake my post...I mean let the market set the price. IOW what the people, as a whole, can afford to pay. Like the way we set the cost of a loaf of bread. Insurance allows the hospitals and doctors to escalate their fees until ordinary folks could never afford to pay them.
Doctor = serf. I want to see a doctor that doesn’t want to see me. Maybe I’ll bring a bottle of vodka and a box of chocolates.
That ain't gonna happen. In Newt's mind, he is way more smarter than you, and he knows what is best for you. Support Newt at your own peril, because government intrusion into individual health insurance will be cemented with a Gingrich Presidency. Why settle? Let's get a candidate who recognizes that government is the problem and cannot possibly be the solution. Gingrich still clings to the progressive fallacy that proper tweaking of government programs will lead to success.
Depends on what we are talking about. If it involves the free market I am all for it. It is to easy to pile on when all the facts are not known.
Wrong..Newt’s Healthcare solutions is a FAR cry from ObamaRoma care
Yeah, apparently you think you are “way more smarter” than me too, and should tell me who Newt Ginrich is and what he thinks. No, thanks.
I don’t care how many times you try to polish a turd, at the end of the day, its still a turd.
Newt’s history suggests he wants a some kind of Government run Healthcare program. No matter how they try to spin it, it’s still socialized medicine.
The best thing the Government should do is to reserve money and send to the states for the purposes of Healthcare and let the states decide how to spend it to meet their needs, within the laws of the Constitution (i.e. no Individual mandates, etc).
