One Response to Socialized Healthcare

PA State Senator Folmer has released his "Healthy Pennsylvania" plan in response to Gov. Ed Rendell's unsurprisingly bloated socialization plan for health insurance in the state.

This is a good start. Among the best parts of Folmer's plan are reductions in state mandates for insurance, promoting HSA's, and allowing out-of-state competition. In order to avoid bloated social healthcare programs Republicans need to have a positive plan of action, not, as Hillary Clinton retorts, a "Just Say No" policy to healthcare.

Democrats say our healthcare system is a result of market failures. Republicans must make it known that a truly free market for healthcare does not currently exist.

Why don't we try the freer market before the more centrally managed market, eh comrade?
