From Ann Coulter:
We need a free market in health insurance, which Congress could accomplish with a one-page bill stating, “There shall be interstate commerce in health insurance.” Once we were allowed to purchase health insurance across states lines – prohibited by law today – everyone would be buying insurance from companies based in states such as Utah, which have the fewest mandates about what health insurers must cover.
Insurance companies would be responsive to us, the people buying their services, and not the government or corporations. Most people would choose to buy insurance only for what insurance is intended for – catastrophes – while paying for regular checkups themselves, the same way we pay for our own cell phones, computers, baby sitters, manicures and everything else that’s been getting better and cheaper, unlike all government-regulated services.
Doctors would then have to be responsive to us, not to our insurance companies. Nothing improves the quality of a service like being able to fire the people providing it. The media don’t want you to think about that, so they edit Romney’s remark and call it a “gaffe.”
For better service right now, for example, the American people need to fire Barack Obama and hire Mitt Romney.
