The (R) House Health Plan

Major elements, as summarized by "Health Reform Talk"

--An "above the line" deduction that is equal to the cost of an individual's or family's insurance premiums.

--Incentives for individuals to build health savings accounts and IRC Sec. 125 flexible spending accounts.

--An option for Medicaid beneficiaries to "transfer" the value of their coverage to a private insurer.

--Allowing youths up to age 25 to remain on their parents insurance policies.

--Limits on malpractice lawsuits.

--Insurance pools that would encourage states, small businesses and others to share risk in low-cost plans.

Same post also shows the Daschle/Dole/Baker plan.

Anything with the Bob Dole name attached will have artificial manhood chemicals contained therein, of course.

Limit lawsuits!?!?! The trial lawyer party will never go for that.
