ANALYSIS/OPINION:

The best solution to Obamacare is to repeal it and not replace it. Get government out of health care and let the free market take care of things. But we all know that will never happen, because once you give someone something for nothing, you have a problem taking it away.

So how about choice among three systems of health-care insurance: a private system, a government system and a mixed system? For those patients and health-care providers wanting government out of the way, there’s the completely private system. For those who desire a mixed system, stay with Medicare. For those who want the government involved, there would be a government system built around an expanded Veteran’s Administration, to include Medicaid and all those who say they can’t get private insurance.

Only those who pick the government system would pay extra taxes to pay for their benefits.

This way everyone gets what they want, right?
