Doug Lerner reports from Tokyo and St. Louis, and points beyond…

The Republican candidates all talk about “tax credits” for getting personal health insurance.

I never understood how this would make private health insurance, which would cost like $6,000 – $9,000 a year for comprehensive coverage for a family of four affordable to an average family who can’t make ends meet already.

Also, I haven’t heard any Republican candidate address the elephant in the room – pre-existing conditions. Unless that is part of the overall solution it isn’t a solution at all as far as I can see.

I’m not a dyed-in-the-wool Democrat by any means. But I don’t see how anybody with the slightest interest in solving the health care issue in the U.S. can even consider voting for a Republican.
