I challenge anyone here to explain what the conservative/ Republican position on health care really is.Opposition to Obamacare is clear. Beyond that, I hear many Republicans say they favor medical savings accounts, “doing something about pre-existing conditions”, allowing purchases of health insurance across state lines and other ideas.
Yet I have never heard a Republican member of Congress say what I consider to be the most obvious and purest statement of principle: "Let’s do nothing about health care." It’s not a federal responsibility. Leave it to the states. Some, like Massachusetts, will enact sweeping laws requiring everyone to buy insurance. Others, in the South and West, will do very little. We should welcome that.
