Newest Downsize DC healthcare proposal - why Obamacare should be repealed quickly. Retweet
Do you want to replace Obamacare with a free market system? We have 20 proposals to do just that. We’ve unveiled them on our blog, and launched our first proposal as a campaign to pressure Congress. Today, we launch a new campaign to pressure Congress about our proposal #2: Repeal Obamacare quickly.
Here’s the strategy...
Senator Rand Paul is promoting a bill to repeal and replace Obamacare with a free market alternative, immediately. We support Senator Paul’s plan. But...
We also want to push on another front, in case there isn’t enough early support for the Senator’s approach. We think there’s something to be gained by repealing Obamacare quickly and installing the free market reforms later. Specifically...
There’s greater support for free market alternatives in the House than in the Senate. Quick repeal would compel the Senate to cooperate with enacting a free market replacement. Absent this move, the Senate appears ready to stonewall. We're already hearing calls to preserve all or part of the status quo. This must not be allowed.
Full repeal should happen in spite of the fact that Mr. Trump wants to retain some politically popular (but still harmful) aspects of Obamacare. Such matters should be dealt with in negotiation. "Mr. Art of the Deal" should understand, better than anyone, that the best way to foster negotiation is by quickly repealing all of Obamacare.
Plus, the more pressure Congress feels for repeal, the more likely they are to support Rand Paul’s proposal and/or our other market-leaning proposals.
Politicians poisoned our healthcare system. They can only fix it by sucking out the politics.
The hardwired text for our new campaign, to repeal Obamacare quickly, reads…
Repeal Obamacare without delay. I want a free market replacement. Terminating Obamacare quickly will increase the pressure to pass a free market alternative. Make that happen.
Reminder: Our new website, will launch soon. That's why we’re NOT wasting money or time updating our current software to account for new members of Congress. If you have a new Rep or Senator, the messages will still deliver to the other incumbents.
