Senator Mike Lee penned a superb editorial on the proposed BCRA. And it has one of the best ideas yet on the bureaucratic monstrosity known as Obamacare: Give people a choice in the matter. With this proposal the so-called ‘Liberals’ and those on the Left with their socialist national agenda can show if they are truly ‘pro-choice’. They can either show themselves to letting the people have the power of choice or they can illustrate that they are the party of economic slavery (Socialism)
In the editorial penned by Senator Mike Lee on the Republican proposal to shore up the collapsing Obamacare healthcare bureaucracy he proposes giving the people a choice in the matter:
And so, for all my frustrations about the process and my disagreements with the substance of BCRA, I would still be willing to vote for it if it allowed states and/or individuals to opt-out of the Obamacare system free-and-clear to experiment with different forms of insurance, benefits packages, and care provision options. Liberal states might try single-payer systems, while conservatives might emphasize health savings accounts. Some people embrace association health plans or so-called “medishare” ministry models. My guess is different approaches will work for different people in different places — like everything else in life.
Forget about the fact that this ‘Repeal In Name Only’ will only serve to eviscerate the Republican party’s raison d’état in every election from 2010 on forward and will hand over this issue to the nation’s socialist left on a golden platter. Obamacare’s further collapse of will redound negatively to the GOP with this ‘change’ to the system. Set aside for a moment that a system that supposedly would lower costs and has done quite the opposite and Trump’s positive words for a socialist single payer system that is diametrically opposite to Conservative principles of limited, constitutional government.
Instead, let us look at the implications of Senator Mike Lee’s proposed modification to that measure. In essence, he wants to have a competition in the marketplace of ideas with regard to health care. We can once again prove the superiority of economic freedom [The free market] versus Economic slavery [Socialism] with Mike Lee’s proposal for the health care bill. If the socialist’s think that their system is better, let them prove it in the context of competition with the free-market.
Granted there are some faction’s of the socialist left that have the pretense of abhorring big government control of the means of production. Presumably they should also vehemently oppose Obamacare.
The nation’s socialist left has certain ideas on how a society should function while we on the right have vastly different ideas. The left advocates for ideas of economic slavery that are at least 500 years old and have yet work – word play with definitions aside. The Conservative – Right advocates for economic freedom. Some of the nation’s socialist left use the dodge that it really wasn’t their ideology in past authoritarian regimes such as the USSR because they failed to have ‘worker co-ops’ or some other amorphous conceptions. Well, one of the ideas currently being foisted are healthcare co-opts, so our comrades on the left can put their ideological money where their months are and support this choice along with all the others.
So why not let the marketplace decide once again, which set of ideas are superior?
Shouldn’t the social Left welcome this chance to show the world that their ideology is superior and the best in fostering the cause of ‘progress’. The Left has a choice in this regard – they can let the free-market illustrate that their way is superior or they can illustrate that their ideology cannot stand up to the advantages of economic freedom.
