The Republicans seem finally to have gotten an act together to stop complaining about ACA and do something sensible. In effect this is a voucher credit system for healthcare expenditures, paid for out of taxes, instead of forcing new taxes on those who elect better plans. We already have progressive income taxes justified for purposes like this. It will be important, however, that payment go only to the healthcare provider that the patient-citizen chooses. When you walk into a healthcare providers or insurers office everyone should know that you are the one paying, not some third party acting in your name. The payment system needs to support the doctor-patient relationship, not the relationship of each to the government.
