Building on the President’s Health Care Agenda
The President’s vision is the right one, […] Congress should enact specific policy changes that are consistent with that vision and that would fulfill its promises. However, Congress should be bolder than the White House and broaden the scope of change well beyond the President’s specific policy recommendations by:
— Expanding the proposed tax provisions to cover all health plans, not just HSA-qualified plans;
— Encouraging health insurance portability through individual ownership, a defined-contribution system, and establishment of a consumer-based “health exchange” marketplace; and
— Transforming the health care market into a more consumer-based system in which individuals are empowered to take direct control of their health care decisions.

That is the advice from the Conservative Think-Tank — the Heritage Foundation!
AND the President they are talking about — is George W. Bush!
SO … a Health Exchange Marketplace = Marxist Socialism ???
