The Free Market Needs to Reign Supreme When it Comes to Healthcare

One of the supposed priorities from the Rrpublican Congress and president-elect Donald Trump this year is to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act this year. Whether that is carried through is another story. if they are serious about it, they are in for a tough battle. Trump claims he is for health coverage for all or universal coverage for all. I disagree with Trump on that point.

The best thing  Congress can do is to repeal the regulations that limit the public from purchasing insurance at low affordable rates.  allow the free market to reign in the health insurance business. they should allow the public, especially young people, to purchase catastrophic insurance at affordable rates.    Another thing that can be done is to allow people to purchase health insurance across state lines. Also tort reform needs to be issued which would not allow for easy lawsuits. Also our healthcare system should not allow for illegal aliens to receive free healthcare. that is a drain on our system.

If the federal government would keep their hands off the health insurance businesss and allow the free market to reign in the healthcare industry with no insurance companies having any kind of monopoly, then insurance rares would be competitive and more people could afford healthcare.
