But if you want... Healthcare costs are rising and will be 120% higher in something like 8 years. That means a family (or their company) now pays $12,600 a year. THat will become $25,00 in 8 years. That isn't even possible for many families or corporations to sustain. So, heatcare needs delt with. So far, the Republican idea is MANDATE that everyone PRIVATELY has to buy their own insurance, do away with Medicare and Medicaid, and maybe a little tort reform. THat isn't going to do any good.
