Hey, here’s a novel idea.. how about CONSERVATIVE legislators at the federal and state levels pass a law where health insurance can be sold across state lines, the rates will drop because of competition and people will then be able to afford INSURANCE (which means it covers against extra-ordinary or catastrophic loss. (as opposed to “insurance” that pays for every little flu shot... does your car insurance pay for oil changes??!!)
The Republicans should have done this in Bush’s first term. Health INSURANCE would be affordable by now.
State lines would be very helpful, but it would take a lot more than that to make it affordable. Mainly, allow more freedom and flexibility of both providers and customers.
Without TORT reform, insurance still wouldn’t be affordable. Maybe a bit lower, but not affordable.

Obamacare actually allows this. All that is required is that the states involved agree to allow the across-state sales. So, the real issue is why CONSERVATIVE legislators in different states aren't moving to do this.
