    It seems to me if you “provide” health insurance to low income families for free it is no longer insurance but merely free health care. Stricter guidelines for health insurers would mean mandated services. Preventing cuts in payments to doctors could also be called subsidizing.

    The only thing that might remotely help contain costs is the liability reform which has been talked about for years but gone nowhere.

    Where’s the choice “Institute various market reforms and educate the public on being good health care consumers”? How about “Educate more doctors to relieve the shortage of physicians”? Maybe “Allow health care providers such as nurses, nurse practioners and health technicians to take a stronger role in service delivery”?

    If you don’t ask the right questions don’t expect good answers.
