One's Observations

A collection of some things I observe along the way.


"Nearly every problem with health care in this country – apart from trial lawyers and out-of-date magazines in doctors' waiting rooms – would be solved by my plan."

"In the first sentence, Congress will amend the McCarran-Ferguson Act to allow interstate competition in health insurance. We can't have a free market in health insurance until Congress eliminates the antitrust exemption protecting health insurance companies from competition."

"The very next sentence of my bill provides that the exclusive regulator of insurance companies will be the state where the company's home office is. Every insurance company in the country would incorporate in the state with the fewest government mandates, just as most corporations are based in Delaware today."

"The third sentence of my bill would prohibit the federal government from regulating insurance companies, except for normal laws and regulations that apply to all companies. Freed from onerous state and federal mandates turning insurance companies into public utilities, insurers would be allowed to offer a whole smorgasbord of insurance plans, finally giving consumers a choice."

"My bill will solve nearly every problem allegedly addressed by Obamacare – and mine entails zero cost to the taxpayer. Indeed, a free market in health insurance would produce major tax savings as layers of government bureaucrats, unnecessary to medical service in America, get fired."

"In addition to saving taxpayer money and providing better health insurance, my plan also saves trees by being 2,199 pages shorter than the Democrats' plan."

"Feel free to steal it, Republicans!" (

I agree - however I would add tort reform to the extent that there would be a cap on awards to medical lawsuits. That would lower insurance rates to doctors which would in turn lower costs across the board.

Though I am not in favor of the government being the guarantor of student loans, I also suggest that there be a provision that people who graduate from medical school and practice for, say five years, be granted an exemption from interest from their student loans.

It would be nice to see English speaking doctors (for a change).
