A better way to reduce healthcare costs is to reverse the actions that caused it in the first place. First, we need to restore low cost volunteer and faith-based care and county health clinics for the poor to perform rescue and repair. Then we need to remove illegal aliens and refugees from all US federal welfare programs. Next, we need to allow hospitals and doctors to refuse to take patients that will not or cannot pay their medical bills. Next we need to restrict public schools to only serve US citizens. Next, we need to limit the right to file malpractice suits to remove defensive medicine practices. We need to repeal all federal, state, county and city laws that interfere with medical provider and insurance operations that drive up costs. We need to allow insurance companies to sell whatever they want and consumers to buy whatever they need and can afford.
Finally, we need to repeal Obamacare and allow consumers to determine how and where they want to spend their healthcare dollars. If government wants to help, they can allow for all IRS 502 deductions and allow consumers to set up health savings accounts.
Then, we need to establish US citizen identification and take steps to remove voter fraud, tax fraud and prevent identity theft. We need to remove non-citizens from CID tax credit eligibility and have non-citizens use non-citizen tax forms, work permit cards and non-citizen drivers’ licenses. Then, we need to establish English as our “official language. We need to update voter registration lists in all US counties annually.
