A consistent media narrative as the GOP moves to repeal ObamaCare is that they have nothing to replace it with.
Surprisingly standing up to refute this nonsense Tuesday was New York Times columnist David Brooks who amazingly wrote, "Despite what you’ve read, there is a coherent Republican plan":
The case against Obamacare is pretty straightforward...The most commonly discussed perverse result is that millions of Americans will lose their current health insurance.
A report by the House Ways and Means Committee found that 71 of the Fortune 100 companies have an incentive to drop coverage... A Congressional Budget Office study this year estimated that 20 million could lose coverage under the law or perhaps 3 million could gain employer coverage. Or the number could be inside or outside the range. [...]
Moreover, there are alternatives. Despite what you’ve read, there is a coherent Republican plan. The best encapsulation of that approach is found in the National Affairs essay, “How to Replace Obamacare,” by James C. Capretta and Robert E. Moffit.
Imagine that. The Republicans have a plan.
Not what you hear or read from the mainstream media, is it?
Here are some of the highlights:
Keep this in mind the next time some liberal media member says Republicans have no plan to fix things after they repeal ObamaCare.
