They analyze what's both good and bad about one of the leading Republican alternatives to the Democratic ObamaCare plan. One key point:
...So long as Republicans play the handout game, they will correctly be seen as "me-tooing" the Democrats, and they will continue to lose, step by step, inch by inch, to those who would subject the entire economy to political controls.The Republicans need to offer a clear principled alternative to the Democrats, and they need to support ideas that resonate with basic American values of individualism, responsibility, justice, and self-reliance. Otherwise they'll keep losing elections -- and deservedly so.
DeMint's handouts also distract attention away from the fundamental problem: health insurance is too expensive because of political controls. You solve that problem by repealing the controls, not by hiding them behind another welfare scheme.
