Let it burn!
In this episode of the Conservative Conscience, we untangle the latest GOP health care bill for those who are perplexed. There is a way conservatives can secure a positive outcome from this bill, but for very different reasons than those intended by the GOP establishment. Far from fixing the insurance market, this bill will continue the current trajectory and prices will continue to go up while competition will not be able to materialize. But at this point, given that the individual mandate will be repealed and we can evacuate from this system, that might be a good thing! The result might be better than fixing insurance; it might lead to a chain of events that solve the actual health care problem.
In this show, we review the core drivers behind health care inflation and how repealing the individual mandate could open an avenue to use the negative energy from Obamacare against this third-payer system and revitalize direct primary care. This is the discussion the politicians refuse to have, but once we are evacuated from the mandate, the market forces can force this reality.
