12 alternatives to Obamacare

John Goodman, head of the one of the National Center for Policy Analysis and one of the nation’s leading free-market health economists, has compiled a list of 12 conservative health care reform proposals that could be used to replace the mammoth health care bill now under consideration in the Senate:

The proposals range from health care vouchers, lump sum tax credits to subsidize private insurance policies, more portable coverage, government-funded high-risk pools for patients with preexisting conditions, giving patients control over how their health dollars are spent, guaranteed coverage, and preserving Medicare Advantage, among others.

What these reforms all have in common is that they can all be implemented without having the government take over 17 percent of the national economy and dictating to doctors how and when to treat their patients.
