Question by Your Bitter Half: What kind of health care reform did Republicans want?
When Obama proposed a public option, Republicans claim it’s too Socialist.
When Obama proposed a private option, Republicans claim it “makes insurance companies rich.”

So my question is: What kind of health reform DID the Republicans want? The majority of Republicans said they do want some sort of health care reform, so I’m wondering what that is exactly.

Best answer:

Answer by Jake
1. Let people buy health care plans across state lines. Increased competition means lower prices for consumers.
2. 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.
3. end bogus lawsuits that increase not only health care costs but doctor’s concerns that they will be sued.

Question by What, Me Change?: Why do they call it a “Health Care Bill”?
I haven’t heard of any provisions for, say increasing the number of MRI’s in doctors offices, or building more hospitals, or low cost loans for accelerating development of miracle drugs.

All I hear about is “Who is going to get medical insurance, and who is going to pay for it?”

Shouldn’t this bill be called a “Health Care Financing Bill”?

Health Care Reform and American Politics: What Everyone Needs to Know

The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act signed by President Obama in March 2010 is a landmark in U.S. social legislation. The new law extends health insurance to nearly all Americans, fulfilling a century-long quest and bringing the United States to parity with other industrial nations. Affordable Care aims to control rapidly rising health care costs and promises to make the United States more equal, reversing four decades of rising disparities between the very rich and everyone else. Millions of people of modest means will gain new benefits and protections from insurance company abuses – and the tab will be paid by privileged corporations and the very rich.

How did such a bold reform effort pass in a polity wracked by partisan divisions and intense lobbying by special interests? What does Affordable Care mean – and what comes next? In Health Care Reform and American Politics: What Everyone Needs to Know, Lawrence R. Jacobs and Theda Skocpol–two of the nation’s leading experts on politics and health care policy–provide a concise and accessible overview. They explain the political battles of 2009 and 2010, highlighting White House strategies, the deals Democrats cut with interest groups, and the impact of agitation by Tea Partiers and progressives. Jacobs and Skocpol spell out what the new law can do for everyday Americans, what it will cost, and who will pay. Above all, they explain what comes next, as critical yet often behind-the-scenes battles rage over implementing reform nationally and in the fifty states. Affordable Care might end up being weakened. But, like Social Security and Medicare, it could also gain strength and popularity as the majority of Americans learn what it can do for them.
