Here's my amateur opinion regarding affordable medical insurance. We should be talking about major medical, and not run-of-the-mill routine blood tests and pap smears that anyone may pay out of pocket sans insurance.

TORT reform solves a lot of the problems, but it's not going to happen because it's not in the best interests of the lawyers who specialize in frivolous lawsuits tied to medical conditions. It would take an Executive Order to fix it.

The medical insurance industry is over-regulated. Allow the insurance providers to expand across State lines, and you'll see a reduction in prices.

For the Federal Government, who sets the rules, to compete directly with the private sector is abhorrent, and to put the IRS in charge of enforcement is pure Fascism. To force the purchase of an optional product is pure Communism.

I'm honestly amazed that the same collectivist programs our fathers and grandfathers and great-grandfathers and great-great grandfathers fought against decades and centuries ago are being implemented in the modern day by ignopeeps.
