We are challenging President Obama’s claim yesterday that no one has offered an alternative to ObamaCare.
John Goodman, president of the nonpartisan, nonprofit National Center for Policy Analysis has come up with a consensus plan as an alternative to the ACA. It is a health reform plan that does four remarkable things:
1. It’s more progressive than ObamaCare.
2. It provides protection for those with pre-existing conditions.
3. It provides genuine access to care for everyone.
4. It works – mainly because the role of government is confined to a few simple rules while individual choice and the marketplace do the heavy lifting.
John’s alternative to ObamaCare is being discussed on cable news and online, for example:
George Will, Steve Hayes and Bret Baier on Fox News:
John Stossel on Fox:
Newt Gingrich on CNN:
