The first thing that jumps to mind is that we do already have income tax exemptions for health care expenses, including prescriptions. We most certainly have the world's most expensive health care, but expensive does not mean the best.

"One of the most important measures of a country's quality of life, along with per-capita income and longevity, is infant mortality the odds that a newborn will live past its first month. By that measure, America is slipping into second-tier status, ranking 41st among 193 nations, tied with Croatia, Qatar, and the United Arab Emirates, according to a study recently published in the journal PLoS Medicine. Two decades ago, the U.S. ranked 28th."

Does that really sound like the best health care money can buy? I don't think so either.

His plan is to make the states responsible. It is a better plan Kit.

For who is it a better plan? Not the people in the poor states....

Every other industrialized nation has health care - we have insurance and drug companies making obscene profits off other people's misery. And you think that would change if the states took over? Wanna buy some swampland in Florida?

It is always a better plan for levels of governments closer to the people to deal with issues Arielle. Our federal governments are too far removed from us locally to know what we need.
