Wow, looks like the first attempt for the Republicans helps the government, but doesn’t do much for the middle class.
So here are my suggestions: One, no exemption for Congress or all the rest who work for government. From judges to bureaucrats and presidents to the mailman – they all participate.
Second: Medical malpractice insurance reform. Putting a cap on damages will bring down the cost and make insurance cheaper.
Three: The ability of insurance companies to negotiate drug prices. This is a must do and it means saving lives.
Four: There must be a sliding scale for tax credits. The poorest should receive the biggest tax credit.
Starting out at $10,000 with the middle class getting no less than $7,000, and those making over $250,000 would receive a$4,000 tax credit.
Because of the savings from healthcare reform, the top 10 percent would only get a $1,000 tax credit, and then be able to buy cheaper insurance.
How to pay for all this? A 10-percent cut in defense spending and a 5-percent national sales tax that includes the internet.
