How to fix Obamacare

Kurt SchlichterStep One: Repeal Obamacare. Put a stake through its heart and leave its head on a pike. So maybe the Democrats won’t vote for a replacement. Good. They’re the party of trough-gorging welfare cheats, not us. It’s their constituents who want the free stuff – yours are the sheep these bums shear. No Obamacare replacement is their problem. See how long the Dems can play the obstruction game with their freeloading voters screaming “Gimme!”

Step Two: Stop trying to plan everything. We can do it ourselves. Lift the regulations and let us buy whatever coverage we want from whatever state we want. Operate under the general principle that every American adult is expected to pay for his own healthcare. Most importantly, stop trying to ameliorate the consequences of bad decisions. If you want to have fewer bad decisions, the very best way to achieve that lofty goal is to let bad things happen to stupid people.

That's pretty much it. There are a lot of little tweaks I'd throw in, like making sure people can get tax credits on individual policies to match the way employer-based policies work, or ending both sets of tax credits. But those are minor improvements. The one thing the Republicans absolutely must deliver before 2018 is repeal of Obamacare. "Replacement" can go fuck itself.
