Scherz and Armstrong on Romney

Dr. Hal Scherz and Dr. Richard Armstrong of Docs4PatientCare discuss what Mitt Romney should do on health care if he is elected president.

They give their recommendations in this 6/5/2012 piece, "Romney Should Own the Healthcare Debate".

 For example:
Allowing insurance to be purchased across state lines and creating a market based model where people can shop for policies with benefits that they need and not ones that they will never use. This will drive costs down and make insurance more affordable. He supports health savings accounts and high deductible policies- both phased out under Obamacare. This creates better healthcare consumers -- something that always happens when people spend their own money instead of someone else's.
I'm not particularly optimistic that Romney would embrace the free-market health care reforms this country desperately needs.

But if he adopted the recommendations from Drs. Scherz and Armstrong, it would be a good first step in the right direction.
