Synopsis:  Program #129 – 4/20/2014 “Repeal & Replace”

 

If ObamaCare is overturned, what should it be replaced with?  Should we return to the same system we had before?  This is no easy question to answer, especially for a people who operate solely on utilitarianism and have no moral foundation for policy.

 

The first question that I tackle is why ObamaCare is failing– pragmatically, but more important, ideologically.   I explain two fundamental moral errors in the Affordable Care Act: slavery and insurance.   I then briefly explain the Republican alternative and look at the Biblical model for dealing with the poor and sick.   In this program I was not able to fully explain all the “Replace” options; nevertheless, this program provides a philosophical underpinning for good policy solutions.
