Voices are starting to emerge on the right promoting a response to the Democrat’s plan that consists of something more material than repeal and replace. From the Washington Examiner:
The good news is that we don’t have to theorize about unproven solutions to our health care problems. Two wealthy countries have health care systems that, if we could substitute them for our own, would exceed the wildest dreams of American conservative reformers. Switzerland and Singapore achieve universal coverage while spending a fraction of what we spend, and they ensure broad access to high-quality doctors and the latest technology.
The plan is worth a look. There are issues with the approach he is adopting, starting with the fact that Singapore’s health care system is much closer single-payer than conservatives seem ready to recognize. But this represents progress. If conservatives ever emerge from the mire of conspiracy and delusion and start debating actual alternatives to Obamacare, we might see good things happen.
