    I don't think ACA is a solution, but I still have yet to see what conservatives think the solution would be.

    Other than killing lawyers, not much.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Public health. Falls under the same kind of thinking as police and fire.

    We could start by allowing the purchase of health insurance policies across state lines. We could (and should) also do something about worthless tort claims - adopting the rule of Loser Pays would appear to be a good start.

    • I fear you're drawing too simplistic a conclusion.
    • Government run healthcare can't possibly make it any better.

    Talk about corporate worship. As if lawsuits weren't already heavily stacked in favor of big business.

    Tort is a small issue blown way out of proportion by most people who advocate for its reform.

    The solution is freedom. People can figure it out themselves.
