My alternative to Obamacare

They should trash the entire bill as it is and start over. It should have 3 pages.

Page 1. Allow health insurance to be sold across state lines, and for the companies to pay taxes based on where they have insurees, not where their businesses are located.

Page 2. Commit money to health and physical fitness in schools again. Instill a healthy lifestyle at a young age to short circuit obesity, smoking, sedentary lifestyles, etc.

Page 3. Tax credit for not using health insurance each year except for wellness checkups. We should incentivize healthy choices and reward those who make the effort to stay healthy and not drag on the system.

The only downside is that this doesn’t provide any entitlements or cash cows for politicians or the health industry. Therefore, these things won’t ever be discussed as reforms. That is why I want this process to fail. It is overly complicated and has little to do with the health of our citizens.
