Armstrong: Republican Plans Similar To ObamaCare

The September 18, 2009 Colorado Springs Gazette has published Ari Armstrong's latest OpEd, "Republican plans for health care reform similar to Obamacare".

Here's the introduction:
Democrats pretend that Republicans are just a bunch of obstructionists when it comes to health proposals. Meanwhile, Republicans debate minor aspects of Barack Obama's plan such as whether it subsidizes illegal immigrants and abortions.

The reality is that every key element of Obama's plan either came from Republicans or arose with Republican support...
To the extent that Republicans are merely fighting over how much to "me-too" the Democrats, then they've already lost. And so will the country.
