Ann Coulter’s One Page Healthcare Plan


Makes sense to me! Summarized from here:

1. Allow interstate competition between insurance companies.

2. Allow insurance companies to incorporate in any state.

3. Remove government regulation of insurance plans except for the usual laws applicable to all types of companies.

Taken together, this will allow competition between all insurance companies, leading to hypermart/telco/budget-airline style reduction in prices and improvement in quality. Failure to do so will result in loss of customers due to that oddity known as market forces.

Insurers will also be free from government mandates such as compulsory inclusion of coverage for sex change operations, that 99.999% of Americans will never need but currently have to pay for nonetheless.

Finally, it will be much cheaper and quicker than Obamacare. But it won’t give government power over one sixth of the economy and people’s very lives either… So no wonder Dems pretend that no alternatives to Obamacare are being proposed, even when it’s on the White House website. (Btw, the GOP/Boehner 4-point plan is very close to Coulter’s 3-point one. I’m surprised she didn’t use the chance to mock trial lawyers like John Edwards again!)

And an illustration from another Coulter article:

A few weeks ago, The New York Times ran an editorial noting the amazing fact that, by the middle of this year, there will be an estimated 6.8 billion people on Earth — and 5 billion will have cell phones! (Even more astounding, at least one of them is seated directly behind me every time I go to the movies.)

How did that happen without a Democrat president and Congress using bribes, parliamentary tricks and arcane non-voting maneuvers to pass a massive, hugely expensive National Cell Phone Reform Act?

How did that happen without Barney Frank and Henry Waxman personally designing the 3-foot-long, 26-pound, ugly green $4,000 cell phone we all have to use?

How did that happen without Obama signing the National Cell Phone Reform bill, as a poor 10-year-old black kid who couldn’t afford to text-message his friends looked on?

The reason nearly everyone in the universe has a cell phone is that President Reagan did to telephones the exact opposite of what the Democrats have just done with health care.

Before Reagan came into office, we had one phone company, ridiculously expensive rates and one phone model. Reagan split up AT&T, deregulated phone service and gave America a competitive market in phones. The rest is history.

If you can grasp how inexpensive cell phones in a rainbow of colors and wonders like the iPhone could never have been created under a National Cell Phone Reform Act, you can understand what a disaster ObamaCare is going to be for health care in America.

Thereby repeating her ongoing argument, the free market does a better job of providing high quality, low cost, innovatively designed products than government mandated monopolies.

Yes, she’s snarky, physically attractive and loves to taunt liberals – but does that make what Ann Coulter says incorrect or unfactual? If so, can you debate her points above? Comments are open.

    WASHINGTON, March 19 (Reuters) – At least 15 U.S. states have sued the Environmental Protection Agency seeking to stop it from issuing rules controlling greenhouse gas emissions until it reexamines whether the pollution harms human health.

    Florida, Indiana, South Carolina and at least nine other states filed the petitions in the U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Washington, D.C. on Thursday, states said.

    They joined petitions filed last month by Virginia, Texas and Alabama.

    The Obama administration has long said it would attack greenhouse gas emissions with EPA regulation if Congress failed to pass a climate bill.

    FLASH: Ann Coulter Ottawa speech shut down… 2000 protesters surrounding building with rocks and sticks — pulled fire alarm in building. Cops shut it down! Blogs calling for Coulter to be hurt. MPs were banned from going, Coulter denounced by an MP in the Parliement.

    “I’m pretty sure little Francois A-Houle does not need to travel with a bodyguard,” she said. “I would like to know when this sort of violence, this sort of protest, has been inflicted upon a Muslim — who appear to be, from what I’ve read of the human rights complaints, the only protected group in Canada. I think I’ll give my speech tomorrow night in a burka. That will protect me.”

    While it was a relief to know that it is still permissible in Canada to promote hatred against unidentifiable groups, upon reading Francois’ letter, I suddenly realized that I had just been the victim of a hate crime! And it was committed by Francois A. Houle (French for “Frank A. Hole”).

    What other speakers get a warning not to promote hatred? Did Francois A. Houle send a similarly worded letter to Israel-hater Omar Barghouti before he spoke last year at U of Ottawa? (“Ottawa”: Indian for “Land of the Bed-Wetters.”)

    How about Angela Davis, Communist Party member and former Black Panther who spoke at the University of Zero just last month?

    Or do only conservatives get letters admonishing them to be civil? Or — my suspicion — is it only conservative women who fuel Francois’ rage?

    How about sending a letter to all Muslim speakers advising them to please bathe once a week while in Canada? Would that constitute a hate crime?

    “The reason nearly everyone in the universe has a cell phone is that President Reagan did to telephones the exact opposite of what the Democrats have just done with health care.”

    While it’s true that the AT&T breakup occurred under Ronnie Raygun’s watch, the credit rightfully belongs to the Department of Justice which launched the antitrust suit in 1974.

    Oh, and the first cellular network was launched in Japan in 1979 — three years prior to the AT&T breakup.

    Nice research.

    But the point is, free market competition without the meddling of government is much more effective at providing cheaper, more effective, more variable options to consumers. Repeal Obamacare, remove forced coverage of risky procedures that are optional and only a minority want yet everyone has to pay for, let insurance companies compete across state lines, and then you’ll have affordable healthcare for all.

    I mean, c’mon… The UK, Canada and Cuba have all tried government-backed healthcare and failed. Why send the US down the same downward spiral even as the former is seeking ways to get out of it?
