For the past few days I’ve seen many articles asking, “What would Reagan do about Obamacare?”
It seems the discussion’s genesis was an article written by Avik Roy for the National Review entitled, “How Would Ronald Reagan Have Replaced Obamacare?”
Although I loved President Reagan, my knee-jerk reaction was, “I don’t care.” Obamacare is unconstitutional, as would be any “replacement” plan. As much as I respected Ronald Reagan – heck, I joined the Navy in part due to Reagan being commander in chief – if he advocated for any federal involvement in the dispensation of private health insurance or health care, I know I should disagree. Of course, that’s easy for me to say – I’m not president.
