Just as the title states, the Republican mantra of buying across state lines is actually bad for Americans for two good reasons; It removes basic state mandated coverage, services states have found to be life saving and humane. Secondly, cheaper a-la-cart plans puts the patient at risk by excluding too many basic services, putting limits on treatments, even after paying monthly premiums, and hides those exclusions in small print legalise designed to be ambiguous in court challenges.
This GOP "trick" is part of their phony plan of lowering costs with risky coverage and "tort reform" that doesn't lower individual premiums. It's frustrating for me to watch Ed Schultz, clueless on the "across state line" rhetoric, give Republicans a free pass on this horrific problematic "solution." So maybe Big Ed and a few other politicians could learn from this Fox News report. It's one of the first of its kind.
