While he was in Israel, Mitt Romney praised their healthcare system for keeping people healthy while keeping costs low.
How does Israel do it? Through aggressive regulation of the entire health care system (not just health insurance), requiring all residents to have health insurance (the dreaded individual mandate that Romney says he opposes at the federal level), and with revenue caps for hospitals and doctors. Not only that, but all health insurance plans are non-profit, and are required to insure anyone regardless of pre-existing conditions.
In other words, Israel’s health care solution goes way beyond Obamacare, while being based on some of the same ideas. And yet Romney says he wants to repeal Obamacare on day one. But he hasn’t offered anything as a replacement.
