A Modest Proposal for Republican Victory in 2012
The presumptive GOP candidate, who gave his state Romneycare, the health insurance program on which the much maligned Obamacare is clearly based, simply needs to come out strongly for replacing Obamacare with Medicare--for everyone.
Medicare is an extremely successful and popular federal program that guarantees access to health insurance for Americans ages 65 and older and younger people with disabilities as well as people with end-stage renal disease. All that is needed is to amend the existing law in order to be able to accurately modify and end the preceding sentence with the words "all Americans."
That's what the American people really want--universal Medicare with access to supplemental insurance costing, say, $200 a year, as per the present program, and the option, of course, for rich and super-rich citizens to add premium, private insurance products that could provide them with luxury hospital suites, physician house calls, private jet airlifts for facelifts and emergency Botox injections, whatever.
