RyanCare = ObamaCare = RomneyCare
Remember how some conservatives were outraged about how ObamaCare forced Americans to buy an expensive product from private firms, i.e. health insurance, and how it violated the commerce clause of the constitution? Well, guess what. Paul Ryan's plan does the exact same thing
: forcing people to buy health insurance from private insurers via vouchers.
Not that I'm against Ryan's plan. I actually like it in concept, even if many details need to be ironed out. Ryan deserves credit for at least tackling the fiscal problems associated with the very costly entitlement program. His plan isn't that radical when you compare it to the core component of ObamaCare, which of course was based on RomneyCare in Massachusetts. Just pointing out the broad similarities. I'll leave it to liberals, who are now attacking Ryan's Medicare reform plan, and conservatives, who are now defending a variation of forced insurance coverage, to tap dance around their own tribal contradictions.
