by Ron Paul: Healthcare
Is a Good, Not a Right

Former Republican
presidential candidate Ron Paul has a frank prescription for the
health care plan making its way through Congress: Scrap it.

"I think
it’s monstrous," Paul said.

"I don’t
think it will improve medical care in this country. I think it’s
very, very costly and we don’t have any money. And they don’t have
any way of paying for it."

The libertarian
GOP congressman and physician was in East Grand Rapids today for
a private reception for what was touted as a "conservative
comeback luncheon."

Paul is skeptical
of estimates that peg the 10-year cost of the plan backed by President
Barack Obama at $1 trillion. He puts it much higher.

He noted that
cost estimates for Medicaid and Medicare are often below the mark.

"On average,
it’s two or three times more expensive than they say. This is going
to be incredibly expensive."

Paul has introduced
a bill that would provide tax credits and medical savings as a means
of expanding health insurance coverage.
