A New Study of the Conservative Alternatives to Obamacare, and What’s Missing From It | National Review Online

One of my favorite health-care analysts, the Washington Examiner’s Philip Klein, has a new e-book, “Overcoming Obamacare: Three Approaches to Reversing the Government Takeover of Health Care,” that sheds some light on what conservatives are thinking about how to replace Obamacare.

As Klein explains, there are many alternatives floating out there. The main issue differentiating them, he suggests, is how much their proponents favor the government’s role in providing health insurance. He’s right, and I think it’s unfortunate.

Of course it’s always important to debate what the appropriate role of government in the provision of anything should be — you know where I end up – focusing exclusively on the provision of health coverage is distracting us from a more important health-care goal: How can we produce better health for more people at lower cost, year after year?
