5 Steps to Better Healthcare

Max Borders of NextRight nails it with 5 steps to better healthcare policy. A summary:

1. Let people buy health insurance across state lines. I live in North Carolina. If folks in my state could buy insurance in Idaho, we would cut our premium almost in half.

2. Give poor and working class people tax credits (vouchers) to buy insurance. It’s not hard. Help the poor. Keep the competitive market, too.

3. De-couple health insurance from our jobs. Change the tax code.

4. Give greater access to health savings accounts for use on the small stuff.

5. Stop driving up costs with regs and mandates.
