Dr. Kelley's Prescription

In the September 25, 2009 Denver Post, Dr. Richard Kelley offers some good ideas for genuine free-market health care reforms.

His piece is entitled "Let's Be Reasonable", and includes the following:
1. Individual Choice and Free Market Competition
2. Tax and Geographic Equity
3. Personal Responsibility
4. Tort Reform
Most of his ideas involve repealing the bad laws that created the problem in the first place, such as the unfair tax exemption for employer-provided health insurance, as well as various insurance mandates and regulations restricting the freedom of contract between customers and insurers.

His ideas should be part of the debate!
