Republican congressman Darrell Issa "ponders," in an image posted to twitter complete with clip art of Rodin's Thinker: "What would a free-market approach to healthcare actually look like?"
Put more succinctly:
I'm proposing we #ReplaceObamaCare and give all Americans access to the same affordable, high-quality health coverage as members of Congress— Darrell Issa (@DarrellIssa) October 2, 2013
This sounds... familiar, doesn't it? Almost like this:
Today, nine million Federal employees and their dependents get health care through the Federal Employees Health Benefits Program (FEHBP), which offers a wide choice of affordable health plans with group protections and good benefits.
But what brave thinker would propose this free-market approach to universal healthcare?
John Kerry believes that all Americans should have access to the same affordable coverage policies that Members of Congress get today.
