"2. Romney said people will have options and choice between (voucher) or (traditional) which ever the individual chooses."

Doesn't take much to see how that plan falls apart. Obama touched upon it but was simply incapable of taking it home.

The way insurers, government or private, remain solvent is that the premiums paid by healthy make up for the costs incurred from the unhealthy.

In the voucher plan, that model falls apart. The private insurers take on the healthy clients, leaving the sick to medicare. Eventually, medicare fails under the weight of that broken model.

Add in the fact that we all know the vouchers will fail to keep up with HEALTHCARE INFLATION and you have the recipe for disaster.
