And no, it isn’t using taxpayer money to pay for abortions. This hopefully will put to rest the meme that those against ObamaCare don’t have ideas. Actually there has been ideas out there, but today House Republican Leader John Boehner (R-OH) lays out four reforms today that will “lower health care costs and expand access to quality care without a government takeover” of our health care system. They are:
· Number one: let families and businesses buy health insurance across state lines;
· Number two: allow individuals, small businesses, and trade associations to pool together and acquire health insurance at lower prices, the same way large corporations and labor unions do today;
· Number three: give states the tools to create their own innovative reforms that lower health care costs; and
· Number four: end junk lawsuits that contribute to higher health care costs by increasing the number of tests and procedures that physicians sometimes order not because they think it’s good medicine, but because they are afraid of being sued.
