Maybe if President Barack Obama’s health care proposal, largely reflected in Democratic legislation in Congress, goes down in flames there’ll be a chance for market-based alternatives to get more thorough consideration. Most Americans probably assume members of Congress are up to speed on all the top health care proposals being offered. But that’s not necessarily so. Checking video of a Senate committee’s health care work session last month, it was clear one Western state Democrat, not known as a partisan, was pretty misinformed about Sen. Tom Coburn’s alternative plan, even though it’s one of the leading ideas put forward by Republicans. So, again, if ObamaCare stalls out, maybe members in the Senate and House will approach the issue with open minds and fresh sets of eyes.
