2008 Elections

Rudy Giuliani on Health Care


(Giuliani dropped out of the race on Jan. 30, 2008, after finishing a distant third in Florida's Jan. 29 Republican primary. He then endorsed John McCain.)

The problem with our health care insurance is it's dominated by government and employers. If 100 million people were seeking out their own private health insurance plans, it would be affordable because free market principles would be at work. A major tax deduction of $15,000 to set up a health savings account would give people an incentive to own their own private health insurance.
