Mr. Grassley on “This Week” said money to pay for the overhaul should come from within the health care industry, such as finding savings opportunities in Medicare.
This really is the Republican plan isn't it? Do nothing, but ask for voluntary changes by an industry that has allowed people to die. On top of that, Grassley wants to find "reform" in the governments Medicare system, not the private sector. I can't count how many times I've heard Republican Congressional lawmakers offer "solutions" involving exaggerated waste in Medicare, but none of the waste and bloated administrative costs in the private sector. Health insurance companies, with their rejection of preexisting conditions and denial of coverage policies, should be protected and saved for their humanitarian contributions to American families.
Mr. McConnell on “Fox News Sunday” expressed his concern that a government-run health care plan might drive private health insurance companies out of business.
That would make me sad.
