Bloomberg’s Paula Dwyer lays out her thoughts on how, if elected, Hillary Clinton could fulfill her promise of fixing Obamacare problems without dismantling the program.

    What should have happened is not to try and dismantle a whole system that, contrary to popular belief, was working for the majority of Americans. No pre-x, no underwriting, cover wellness. All great ideas. Before reform, high risk pools existed state by state for the few who could not buy coverage due to health problems. The money that's been wasted could have been used to fortify and support those pools that were working but expensive. The subsidy money could have been spent there and they would not have had to try and reinvent the wheel with the failing exchanges. Obamacare went too far, over reached and ultimately will fail under its own weight. Instead of trusting "reform" to more bureaucratic ineptitude, why not take what was working and improve upon it. With the money wasted so far, every state could have covered their working poor and / or those with health problems and had money left over.

    I will whole heartily agree with the above statement. Get rid of all of the employees that the government needs to administer another failed program and use this money to pay the losses that would accumulate ont eh state pools. Keep reasonable deductibles, reasonable premiums and a large either HMO or PPO.
