Watch: Rand Paul Steps Up, Unveils Obamacare Replacement

Rand Paul Finds his Mojo

Whether you agree with him or not, even we must admit, Rand Paul may now be stepping out of his Father's shadow. He seems energized, and dare we say it, charismatic on this. Rand is no longer the damp sponge of political persoanlities. He found something to sink his teeth into. Later today, he will field questions on the proposal.- Soren K.

Here is an example of a capitalist company that works. Alvarado Street Bakery in Petaluma , CA. It is a labor (people) intensive bakery run like a capitalistic co-op. The workers work extremely hard to make 40,000 loaves of excellent bread a day. They make between 50-80K per year with fantastic benefits. The principals and executives make less than 200K. No stockholders. Each employee has a vote in the Co. Does that sound bad. Believe me they have great healthcare. So as you can see the difference is manly that the higher ups don't take too much. I may not be as smart as a robot.

Good for Rand Paul to try to tackle this issue. Bring us something good. That said, he has (for his self and family) the best government healthcare that we pay for with our taxes, better than most socialist countries. Also, Health Savings Accounts even if you can save for that on top of health insurance, part of the so called "Market" based solution has some flaws. Do you put off care, when you control the costs? And with "Catastrophic" care plans, if you are too cheap or too poor you wont have regular Doctor to help you manage the incremental health issues before they become "Catastrophic" where intervention is needed in the most expensive way. Darwinism I guess. Our military budget could be cut in half (Rand Paul would agree) and we could probably be just as strong as a country and still have good healthcare, Like our congressman have.
