1. Completely repeal Obamacare. Our elected representatives must eliminate the individual mandate. No person should be required to buy insurance unless he or she wants to.
I hate to post the entire thing, but I would like to post a section of the philosophy guiding it.:
The reforms outlined above will lower healthcare costs for all Americans. They are simply a place to start. There are other reforms that might be considered if they serve to lower costs, remove uncertainty and provide financial security for all Americans. And we must also take actions in other policy areas to lower healthcare costs and burdens. Enforcing immigration laws, eliminating fraud and waste and energizing our economy will relieve the economic pressures felt by every American. It is the moral responsibility of a nation’s government to do what is best for the people and what is in the interest of securing the future of the nation.
Providing healthcare to illegal immigrants costs us some $11 billion annually. If we were to simply enforce the current immigration laws and restrict the unbridled granting of visas to this country, we could relieve healthcare cost pressures on state and local governments.
To reduce the number of individuals needing access to programs like Medicaid and Children’s Health Insurance Program we will need to install programs that grow the economy and bring capital and jobs back to America. The best social program has always been a job – and taking care of our economy will go a long way towards reducing our dependence on public health programs.
This is an absolutely wonderful plan, though I see no mention of tort reform unless that’s in another section.
With Trump, we appear to have gambled on a candidate and won the jackpot. He has been America-First since at least 1990, so I believe he can be trusted as well as can any politician.
Cruz has the mad zealots, but Trump has the common sense conservatives who are goal-oriented, putting First Things first. I expect this healthcare plan will go a long way in pulling support away from Cruz.
