GOP’s ‘Pledge To America’ Replaces Affordable Care Act With Provisions From Affordable Care Act
By Igor Volsky, ThinkProgress.org — Sept 22, 2010
Ironically, today Republicans are also unveiling a new “Pledge To America,” an agenda that promises to “repeal” all of these benefits — as well as the entire health care law — and replace it with “reforms that lower costs for families and small businesses, increase access to affordable, high-quality care and strengthen the doctor-patient relationship.”
The document provides almost no specifics about what the [GOP] party would do to control health care spending, improve quality, or pay for its reforms.
And at least 7 of the GOP’s ideas on health care are already included in the health care law:
Insurance Across State Lines
High-Risk Insurance Pools
Lifetime and Annual Caps
State Innovation Conscience Protections
WTF! What Kind of Pledge is that?
