Monica Crowley: Republicans Put Forth 'Market Based Solutions' For Health Care

Fox's Monica Crowley wants Americans to believe Paul Ryan and Republicans have a solution to our health care system in the United States other than telling everyone they're on their own against the insurance companies.
Views:

Most of the country might be taking a break on this July 4th holiday, but the liars over at Fox never rest. Ever since the announcement that the Obama administration decided to push back the effective date of the employer mandate under the Affordable Care Act to 2015, that's all they can talk about over there.

This segment was a little different than most of them, because even one of their favorite faux-Democrats, Doug Schoen pointed out to his fellow guest, Monica Crowley that maybe the Republicans ought to do something besides just have one repeal vote after another and offer some positive suggestions of their own to improve our health care system.

Of course Crowley wasn't going to let that go by without chiming in.

CROWLEY: Well, I agree with you Doug, but I will disagree on this one point. I think that the Republicans over the course of this debate the last several years, they certainly have put out market based solutions to health care reform. When this debate started about four or five years ago, no one was saying that the system didn't need reform. The question was how to reform it and certainly Paul Ryan and so many others on the GOP side put out market based and consumer and patient based solutions to try to fix the problems, but instead, this administration and the Democratic party went full-on with Socialized medicine. And now the entire thing is collapsing under its own weight and absurdity.

Ah yes. Socialized medicine... otherwise known as Bob Dole, Mitt Romney and The Heritage Foundation's health care plans, which has magically become "Socialism" now that a Democrat endorsed it. Alan Grayson had it right the first time around as to what their health care plan is... don't get sick. And if you do get sick, die quickly.

And if anyone needs a reminder of just what Paul Ryan would like to do for most Americans when it comes to their health care needs, just go read these two posts from Jon Perr:
