I think it is a perfect trap. It’s being repealed via Executive Action. We can argue that the law is moot and repeal it via legislation, once we have both Houses.
I’d like to see it undone and some innovations passed that would encourage more competition:
1. pricing transparency
2. national purchasing rights
3. let individuals get the same tax discount that businesses get
4. Commerce Clause enforcement. If Wickard proves that everything is in commerce, then why are local, county and state governments allowed to interfere in the medical/healthcare market with restrictive licensing, permitting and regulation? (for this one we need a conservative POTUS, but the top three can be done via Congress)
What do you think of that?
If Wickard [ Wickard v. Filburn ]proves that everything is in commerce, then why are local, county and state governments allowed to interfere in the medical/healthcare market with restrictive licensing, permitting and regulation?
"What do you think of that?"
You're not a bad stalker.
“We can argue that the law is moot”
HA! How can they claim otherwise when they are busy dismantling the “law of the land” by executive orders, exemptions, talking points, and regulations??
I would like to see o care in a graphic — a puzzle, with all the pieces missing because they are not there at all [such as the payment system], are working only sub-standard (such as the back end to the insurers and the web-site which they should NOT be operating without security!), waived, postponed, retracted by order or regulation, etc.
That would show to the naked eye what if anything of the law IS operating AS legislated.
Yes, other options. One reason the insurance system got so convoluted is precisely that businesses could take the deduction, and individuals cannot. THAT needs to go. Either no one gets the deduction, or everyone does.
More MSAs, catastrophic insurance, etc.
