Description:

The paper discusses the drawbacks of universal health care programs and centralized government control and passionately argues that the U.S. would be far better off modifying its current private system. The paper highlights the disadvantages of Obamacare in providing for citizens and in terms of the potential costs it will have on the U.S. taxpayer.

From the Paper:

"A modification of our current health care system would also include a much-expanded use of medical MSAs--interest-bearing, non-taxable Medical Savings Accounts--in conjunction with relatively high deductibles for major medical. The savings account would be used to pay for the major medical deductible.
"The editors of National Review Online magazine ("Three Strikes Against Obamacare") proclaim that democrats have misled the American public with three claims: no one will be forced out of their current coverage; the public will not be subject to health care rationing; and that the program will not accumulate enormous amounts of debt for future generations. They claim the democrats know these statements are untrue and are purposely misleading consumers in order to get the legislation passed.
The worst of these, they say, is that millions of American families will be forced out of their current medical insurance. Then they will be forced into the government-run program. Though they admit current insurance plans are grandfathered into Obamacare, they claim that it is for only the first five years, and that is it written into the bill (Section 202(b)(1). "After that, the Democrats' mandates will force families and employers to select only those plans that conform to Washington's demands -- which is to say, to the demands of the insurance-industry lobbyists who will end up determining the criteria" (the editors)."
