Republicans offer healthcare plan

Wall Street Journal, May 21, 2009

Republican lawmakers stepped up their opposition to Democrats' plans for overhauling the nation's healthcare system by introducing legislation that would give Americans tax credits to pay for health insurance. The plan offers a glimpse into how the GOP is mobilizing against Democrats' effort to create a public insurance plan and to require companies to provide or otherwise pay for health-insurance coverage for workers. Republican lawmakers say such measures would bureaucratize the nation's health system and stifle job creation.
