Sometimes you wonder why people miss the obvious.

If the Republicans want Obamacare overturned by the Supreme Court, force the Supreme Court Justices to use the healthcare exchanges.

The justices would take the time to read it this time and would find many unconstitutional things in it.

I bet it would be overturned within a week.

Price controls.

Unfortunately, bringing the Federal government into the matter increases the price for services, drugs, etc.

No. I want the states to implement price controls and I want to end the US government process of repeatedly extending drug manufacturer's ability to prevent generic drugs to be created. To get big pharma's support of his healthcare plan, Obama sold out the American people; he increased big pharma's ability to prevent generic drugs from getting into the United States.

Likewise, Americans pay significantly more for the same drug, same brand than it cost overseas. That's because the Feds allow big pharma to boost their prices here in the US so they can continue to research more drugs.
