Republicans offer no healthcare alternative
Republicans spend a lot of time picking on Obamacare, mostly pointing out problems with the federal website and lately focusing on Obama's statements that they could keep existing policies.
It is now clarified that keeping existing policies is not always possible because insurance companies are exiting some markets and also changing existing policies. Insurance companies are responding to profitability issues for themselves, a perfect example of capitalism at work as they adjust their offerings.
The website problems will be fixed. In states that have state-run exchanges there is already significant evidence that people are enrolling and finding policies that work for them.
All of this will get worked out, I have no doubt.
In the meantime, Republicans offer no solutions of their own. Rather than proposing alternatives or changes to the ACA, they offer only criticism - and all or nothing proposition.
They are obviously hoping that no one will notice that they are sitting on their hands. I hope the American people are taking note of their inactivity. Republicans have nothing to offer the American people in terms of progress on this issue that hits every American.
That is the real shame. Republicans would rather finger point than help.
