There is another option. The Republican alternative plan is massively shorter and avoids placing a new unbearable fiscal burden on the taxpayers. Instead of a government take-over of healthcare, the bill would work to ensure that healthcare is more affordable and make it harder to take advantage of the system. It would focus on stopping the abuse of medical malpractice lawsuits and would allow Americans to cross state lines to buy insurance. It would help small businesses to pool together to get better insurance for their employees at better prices. Plus, it would prohibit federal funds from being used to pay for abortions.
