If we insist on spending this staggering amount of money, we could spend it in a way that actually provides health care for the many Americans who supposedly desperately need it.
Direct primary care offers in reality what our political class has thus far offered us only in theory: sane, reasonable, and affordable health care.

Why is conventional opinion so quick to assume that the American people lack the imagination and initiative to get creative if insurance schemes get scrambled overnight?
To succeed in their attempts to repeal and replace Obamacare—and avoid a midterm drubbing—Republicans must correct the terms of the debate, soon and without wonkiness.
