Scott Walker Proposes A New Healthcare Plan
Walker offers a new plan to replace the Affordable Care Act. It will help him in the primaries because anything that is opposed to Obama's plan appeals to the GOP base. There are two problems with his plan. The first problem is that Republicans do not have enough votes to repeal the ACA. The second problem is that his numbers on funding the plan don't add up. Moreover, his substitution of a new conservative plan for the ACA, which follows the outlines of a proposal made by the conservative Heritage Foundation, is short on a rationale for moving to his plan that goes beyond electioneering.
