Instead of repeal and replace we should improve and build. Hey, I'm not unsympathetic to those who find they hate the deal they've got. My premiums doubled in the last year, my deductible went up and my choice of doctor eliminated. But there are things that are working and we need to keep what works and build solutions on top of the foundations. There are innovative ideas out there. But no one's listening above the fray of partisan politics. There's also the myth that the young are penalized by the mandate, but that's not true. In fact the opiate epidemic is placing a tremendous burden on the system, an epidemic that is primarily among those under 34. Without access to treatment, these young adults become even a bigger burden on taxpayers through the criminal justice system. It's time we realize everyone needs healthcare and a proactive government to support it. This doesn't mean the private sector doesn't play a role. Health insurers have been the biggest winners in this fight and the biggest reason for its failure. We need more competition to infuse this ancient business with innovation. May be frog stores own more of the supply chain including broader healthcare delivery. Maybe health systems can do the same. There are great ideas out there but the government is the only entity that can provide an incentive large enough for someone to take on the challenge. We've seen this is true with the development of the A bomb and the space program. It's time again for the government to be in the VC business so we all may profit.
