The alternative to leeches

It's one of the oldest jokes there is.
Doctor, it hurts when I do this.
-Then don't do that!
Republicans will continue to be asked what their alternative to Obamacare is. And while I would encourage folks to continue to work on answering that question, it's terribly unfair if you think about it.
It's a little like asking about the Republican alternative to leeches and bloodletting. The answer is to not do those things. Yes, there are alternatives out there, but the important thing is to stop doing the stupid and counterproductive things first.
